Skills and Attitudes of a Lead Learner- Our Community speak!

    It was fantastic to have over 200 people participating in our Parent Consultation evenings in terms 2 and 3 this year. The parents and staff discussed the vision, values and principles of the NZ Curriculum, the Key Competencies and recently the learning areas. Their feedback and input is critical to the development of the Windsor Way Curriculum as a vibrant, meaningful and effective curriculum for our children. You can see the skills an attitudes that we as community (but especially our parents and grand parents) believe are "top of the list" for a lead learner at Windsor. 
These concepts will be weaved into our curriculum for 2010 onward! 
Thank you to the many who contributed to this. We would also love our parents to remember to contribute to our online survey as we continue to "Learn together with PRIDE"

Parent Consultation Evening

It was fantastic to have another 50 parents and grandparents turn out for our curriculum consultation and information evening on Wednesday night.
These community members added to the 130 that attended in term 2 giving us nearly 200 people who have contributed to the Windsor School Curriculum and the definition of a lead learner at Windsor. They also had the opportunity to update their knowledge and skills regarding 21 Century reading and mathematics practices and develop their understanding of what Integrated Learning is all about.
Our online survey will be up and running next week- please join them in developing our school curriculum.
