Our Whanau Voice Hui

On Saturday April 8th 2017,  we extended an invitation for all whānau to attend our Whānau Voice Hui.  This was a wonderful opportunity for our families to come together to share kai, ideas, aspirations and thoughts about their children at Peterhead School.   This was a great success and we were given some valuable reflections and feedback to share with you all.  

What are we doing really well as a school?  What do you like about us? What do you like about the things we do?

We asked:

• Clear focus in the learning.

• When the kids walk into the gates of Peterhead they know the kids are safe.

• The three kete - the kids bring up the three kete on a daily basis - transferring them into the home.

• The teachers at Peterhead School are role models for other teachers, we know Peterhead teachers are doing things    really well. 

• Peterhead makes us all feel welcome.

• The school involves the parents.

• Lots of opportunity, sports, academic.
