4% of survey complete.

Dear Parents
Blockhouse Bay Primary is working on our future plans for the school, plans that will shape our school for over the years to come.  As part of this planning we need to understand our strengths, areas for improvement and the aspirations of the community for the future of the school.  To achieve this, we are surveying the thoughts and views of school community and would like to assure you that we will be taking the results of this into account as we plan for the future.
The survey covers a variety of areas and will help us gauge overall thoughts and opinions.  It's your chance to have a say and to help drive our goal on continual improvement - your views are very important and positive feedback is just as important as advice.
If you are unable to complete the survey on-line, please contact the school and we will arrange for someone to assist you to complete your questionnaire.  This could even be done at school with the help of a staff member if you prefer.
The Board will work independently of the school to conduct the research project. The survey has simple instructions for each question and is very user friendly to fill out.  We estimate that it should take about 20 minutes to complete.  There is also a change at the end of the survey to add any further comments that you may wish to make.
Please be aware that any information you give as part of this survey will be treated with the strictest confidence.  No information will be attributed to any individuals.  We need to have your ethnic group so we can ensure that we are meeting the needs of all ethnicities, so please fill this in as well.
Please complete the survey by midday Friday 22nd September.
If you have any questions about the survey, please call the school office (627 9940) and leave a message for Stephen Dallow, Chairperson of the Blockhouse Bay Board of Trustees.  He will ring you back as soon as he is able.  Alternatively you can email him, stephendallow@slingshot.co.nz.

Thank You

Neil Robinson
