Parent Input: Community Conversation - Thursday 27 April @ 7:00pm
A conversation between people is the starting point for improved understanding. Within the community of a school, many conversations occur between all members of that community, about areas of common interest: the family, the child, learning, growing, the ways in which the school operates, its priorities and hopes.
Community Conversations provide a process that extends and develops those informal moments, and builds and changes relationships within the community. The process involves having intentional and inclusive conversations between members of the community, in which participants listen to each other, in order to understand and explore what is important to and valued by that community.
We believe that all parents should have opportunities for input if they wish. We introduced our “Thirsty Thursday” parent input forums last term, and these will continue for the remainder of the year (see our website for dates and times). “Thirsty Thursdays” are hosted during the day and we are hosting an evening “Community Conversation” for those parents that find day time commitments difficult.
An outline of our upcoming “Community Conversation” was sent to parents via Care Monkey and we encourage parents to come along at 7:00pm next Thursday evening.
