Dear School Community,
On behalf of the Churchlands Primary School Board, I’d like to give you all an update on the Board’s activity and our plans for the near future.
Firstly, I’d like to acknowledge everyone who took the time to fill out the recent Parent Survey. There were 100 respondents which is an excellent level of engagement. There were a number of very encouraging and positive outcomes from the survey, particularly around the quality of education provided at CPS and the care and concern teachers have for their students. Parents also noted areas where they felt improvements could be made, including feedback to parents and concerns around class structures. We will continue to discuss these as a School Board over the remainder of 2021 and into 2022.
Over the past few months, the school has made progress on acquiring the vacant land adjacent to the Kiss & Drop, with a view to creating a larger formal carpark and Kiss & Drop in this area. The School Board is actively supporting the land acquisition and is endeavouring to work with both State and local government authorities to ensure the best outcome for the school. The Board is also actively engaged with the City of Stirling on the traffic issues experienced on Cromarty Road due to the Churchlands Green traffic modification trials.
Furthermore, since the end of Term 1, the School Board and P&C Association have enjoyed a much greater level of collaboration, particularly around supporting P&C activities and discussing issues that are important to our community. Together we look forward to continuing this important working relationship.
Finally, you may be aware that there is an election process underway for a new Board member. To see a number of excellent candidates come forward to express their interest in joining the Board is very pleasing. We look forward to welcoming a new member to our next meeting in Term 4. We would also like to thank departing member, Natalie Romano, for her significant contribution to the Board and the school over the past two years.
