School report de­lights

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

Toko­roa Cen­tral School’s Ed­u­ca­tion Re­view Of­fice report in­di­cates years of sig­nif­i­cant progress for the pri­mary school.

Re­ceiv­ing a three-year grade, which sug­gests an­other report will be con­ducted in three year’s time, the school was com­mended for its im­mense progress un­der the guid­ance of prin­ci­pal Ti­naMa­ree Hooper.

‘‘The main thing that we are really thrilled about is we really fo­cussed on what needed to be done and the report re­flects that,’’ she said.

‘‘I was really de­lighted that the re­view ac­knowl­edged that the prin­ci­pal, teach­ers and stu­dents are well sup­ported by a ded­i­cated team of sup­port staff.

Mrs Hooper said the school is now in a pe­riod of sta­bil­ity.

The Ed­u­ca­tion Re­view Of­fice also noted that Toko­roa Cen­tral School has a high level of accountability for stu­dent achieve­ment.

The report ap­plauds Mrs Hooper for be­ing a ‘‘vi­sion­ary ed­u­ca­tional leader’’ who places stu­dents at the cen­tre of all de­ci­sions.

‘‘Mov­ing a school from be­ing in a pe­riod of statu­tory man­age­ment into a high- per­form­ing school does take an un­der­stand­ing of the change pro­cesses. I ac­knowl­edge those com­ments, how­ever, I know that this isn’t some­thing I can do on my own and that it takes a team.’’
