Fantastic news this week to be named by the Minister of Education as one of the first 20 schools in NZ to be connected to Network 4 Learning's managed internet network. This is the new government- funded managed network, which will include uncapped data, content filtering and network security services. We should be all up and go with the faster broadband connection before the end of this year which is really exciting. This is really timely and helpful as we move forward with our focus on using mobile digital technologies more effectively in all classrooms to enhance children's learning. It should also open up new learning opportunities and ways of collaboration for our children and for our teachers.

There has been a delay in the publishing of school by school data on the Ministry of Education's website until the end of July. A significant number of school annual reports have not been received or processed yet and potentially a large amount of data will need to be removed from these reports in order to protect student privacy. Clearly the final published data will be incomplete and even less reliable and valid for use to make between-school comparisons. Which begs the question of why it is even published in this way in the first instance?
Thankfully with the assessment tools and processes we use, teachers know far more about your child’s achievement than National Standards can tell you. That is why we prefer to hold learning conferences where you can discuss with your child's teacher specific assessment results and what their next steps for learning are going to be to help them make further progress. Please make sure you book a time online by Thursday 4 July.
