Best laid plans....

That plan to blog on a regular basis....
It has been an interesting time with the proposed merger then the interim decision and then the final decision regarding the merger between Burwood and Windsor on the Windsor site.
What I know is that following the earthquakes we made sure that our children felt safe and were having fun with their learning, teachers were even more specific about the learning that was planned and worked very hard to engage children. Our children have been making improved progress since the earthquakes because we are determined to focus on things that count.
Will the mergers derail us? No! If we can survive and thrive after the events of 2010 and 2011 then we can also survive and thrive after a merger- we owe it to our children. We will be taking advantage of every opportunity to maximize learning opportunities for our children.
Personally I would love to lead the merged school into the future and look forward to the opportunity to present my ideas and credentials for the position in due course.
We are in one of the most exciting times in educational history. We have the opportunity with new technology, teacher knowledge and skill, rebuilds and repairs and community involvement to create the most amazing school for the communities of Burwood and Windsor.
Time to look forward and make it great for the children, staff and community.
