Zest for Learning
"Te Ihi ki te Ako"
As I write this I can see out of my window three families leaving the College grounds following their HSP meeting. Our Home School Partnership [HSP] is a critical factor in the success of our learners at Alfriston College. For our learners to see that we: the school, the family and the learner are working together to support the best possible outcomes and future that can be. This year has seen things slightly different as we have arranged appointments for every single learner in school and I pay tribute to the staff who have taken on the chance to spend time with every one of their tutor group and their family.
I also appreciate and thank the family members who have had to take time off work to come into school to value their childs' learning. Every interaction like this has tremendous value. I hope that you were able to make it. The goals and actions that are set now will help our learners to specifically target what they need next, so please keep talking about the learning and maintain that zest!
