Planning for 2020
Planning for next year and beyond is a major focus of the board. It involves looking at different possible scenarios and staffing options, costing them against expected income and expenses, taking into consideration further growth in the school as we expand, and what that's likely to involve. Some things in the picture are known or predictable, other things are still unknown. So the process is complex, involves imagination, consideration of potential risks, and importantly – optimism – as our financial consultant and former board treasurer, John Oxley so wisely encouraged us to keep in the mix. Indeed, we have much to be optimistic about. Interest in the school is growing, and enquiries for new enrolments have exceeded what we can accommodate now.
A staffing model for next year has been accepted and some new teacher positions have been advertised. We look forward to adding new teaching staff to our growing school.
