• Integration Update W2 T2

    10 May, 2018

    To all parents,

    David Gates and I have the pleasure of introducing John Weeks to the combined parent forum tonight.  John will be speaking on the educational benefits and opportunities of the two schools coming together in 2019.

    He is an impassioned educational leader, having just retired as the Headmaster of Knox Grammar School. John is thrilled to be working with us through the integration process, starting with a review of the new school’s staffing structure and chairing the independent panel appointing the key leadership roles. He will also be meeting with the Integration Working Committee on Educational Excellence, which will be organised on his return from leave in late June. Having just stepped down from Knox, John and his wife, Denise, will be taking planned extended leave travelling overseas.  However, John is committed to continue to work with us on his return as we plan for the start of the new school in 2019.

    Tonight’s forum will be videoed so that those parents unable to attend tonight will be able to see the presentation and discussion.

    We have received a comprehensive list of questions from the Scots Parents and Friends meeting last week. While a number have been addressed at different forums, we are currently collating them all with a number of others received from All Saints’ parents, from which written answers will be provided to all parents. I expect that some questions and answers will also be expanded upon in future weekly updates.

    I look forward to meeting with the Executive teams of the two P&F Associations this afternoon ahead of the parent forum. Topics include the planned merger of the two Associations and the opportunity of reforming some of the Integration Working Group Committees as committees of the new combined P&F. This will provide the P&F a strong consultative voice on behalf of all parents.

    David, John and I look forward to meeting parents tonight.

    Kind regards,
