Planning in the works for future school
At a planning meeting last Saturday the board resolved to remain at Table Street for next year. The Infrastructure Committee has identified a potential site in Port Macquarie which the school could expand onto, and our interest has been communicated to the owners. We hope to hear back from them in the next few weeks. We also have our eye on another property with much potential, but its occupation, because of a number of local government requirements first to be met, would be delayed by maybe five or more years. The board has re-committed to ensuring Port Macquarie Steiner School continues to grow to meet the demand of both new families coming to us and those already enrolled. Our aim on any new site where we determine to establish the school, whether temporarily or in the long-term, is to ensure it meets the high standards of what a Steiner School provides for its students practically, as well as aesthetically, and of most importance educationally. We are looking at holding a meeting with the school community sometime in term 3 when we have more information to share.
Help with website!
We are so pleased to announce website designer and school Mum, Shelle Wallis, has volunteered to help us improve our website and keep it up-to-date. Shelle has spent many hours already transferring our previous website content onto a new, more easily accessible platform, and you will be seeing many more changes and additions soon, until the website becomes truly useful for accessing information about our school, and reflects our unique qualities. Thank you, Shelle!
