Morning Tea with Mr McClare
One of the most important parts of being a Principal, or any educator for that matter, is the ability to seek out and respond to feedback. Finding out what is going well at Kalinda and what we can do better is an important job at any stage of my time at the school. Listening to feedback is hugely important in my first year here, but would be just as important in my tenth year at the school.
As well as regularly meeting with staff, parents and School Council, it is crucial that the students have the opportunity to have their voice heard. From next week, I will begin weekly 'Morning Tea with Mr McClare' sessions with students from across the school. Each week on Friday mornings, from 10:00am-11:00am I will be meeting with 5 random students selected from a class in the school. Over the course of the year I will have the opportunity to have a deep discussion with students from every class.
Before my first Morning Tea with a group of students next week, I would like to invite any interested parents to join me for morning tea next Friday 14th June at 9:00am in the staff room. I hope many of you can make it to this Morning Tea straight after drop-off and I look forward to getting to know more of you and hearing your feedback about what is great about Kalinda and what areas we can improve in.
