Tēnā koutou katoa. I'll start with a massive thank you to the parents and caregivers…
Kia ora whanau,
It’s exciting to see the school back to having kids in classrooms, and back to having close contact with their friends again following lockdown – how lucky we are to all live in this part of the world with a relatively COVID-free status. It’s really important to highlight that the school remains prepared and ready – and that we now have the benefit of experience – to deal with whatever might come our way.
The Board of Trustees are now back to meeting face-to-face again, and our temporary arrangement of having only Zoom meetings is now complete. Therefore, I’d like to again invite anyone who is interested in attending to join us at our public meetings – you are very welcome to attend, and we value the engagement from the community.
Safety and Behaviour
No doubt, you’ll all have seen recent emails from the school about incidents in the car park by the tennis club that have put the safety of children, caregivers and staff at risk. We’ve had incidents so severe, that they have resulted in the involvement of police, and warnings have been given. The school simply cannot condone dangerous or repeatedly reckless behaviour, and must take all steps to keep everyone safe.
Therefore, The Board and School Management have met with representatives of the Police, Campbell Park Tennis Club, and Cornwall Park Trust Board (the owners of the car park) to discuss the matter, and all parties have agreed to work together to address the issues we’re seeing. The School has now been given the authority to trespass people from the upper carpark on behalf of Cornwall Park Trust Board. This trespass notice covers the entirety of the boundaries of Cornwall Park – not just the car park – and lasts for a period of two years. This is an extreme measure we hope that we’ll never need to use, but ensuring safety is a non-negotiable for us all, and we are prepared to act if we see serious breaches and extreme behaviour.
Thank you to the significant majority of parents and caregivers who are considerate users of the car park and grounds of the school.
Thank you to everyone who has donated to the school this year – we know that this year has been more financially challenging for many people, so your contribution feels even more special this time around. Your donations fund resources and staffing to enhance the opportunities for your children at the school. If you haven’t yet donated, then please donate in any way that you are able to and any amount you feel comfortable with – through kindo is easiest. The School office can help you set up regular or part payments if needed.
The board discussed the current review for Term 3. Please take some time to have a look at the policy up for review this term. https://cornwallpark.school.
