Late in 2016, the Board’s Strategic Planning Committee met with parents, students and staff to discuss ideas about Paraparaumu College’s future. We now have a draft strategy for you to consider. Please click on the link below. We hope you can see your ideas represented here. If not, we’d love to hear from you again. At the heart of the new plan is our set of ‘Great Learner’ values (CARE) and our new ‘PC Way’. Both of these will guide us in the decisions we make and our interactions with each other. You will see that the specific actions of the plan which follow are organised under three headings: ‘Teaching Excellence’, ‘Learning Excellence’ and ‘A Culture of Excellence’. The new plan will be the basis of more specific action plans for each of the next four years. We are required to submit our Charter, including our finalised Strategic Plan, to the Ministry of Education by 1st March, but if you have any feedback for us before then, we invite you to email Gregor at firstname.lastname@example.org so that the committee can consider your ideas as they finalise the plan. This is an exciting time of growth and development at the College. Thanks for your input so far. We look forward to hearing from you if you have any further thoughts or ideas.
