The Board met in August over Zoom to look at the school's COVID-19 response and distance learning (well done team!), receive an update on strategic goal two related to professional development of staff, discuss the term 2 health and safety report, and to look at early plans for the re-cladding of the main block as part of our 10 year property plan, with some work due to begin in our next summer holidays.

We met again this week to consider out of zone placements for next year - we planned to look at some ideas for strategic goal 3 (our community) for 2022, but we decided to combine that item with school camp approvals in an extra new session on 21 October.

We also agreed to bring our 18 November meeting forward a week to 11 November to accommodate various school events.
