Now that the Taskforce’s report Our Schooling Futures: Stronger Together |Whiria Ngā Kura Tūātinitini has been published, the members are very keen to receive feedback from as many people as possible to help them complete their final recommendations and report to the Minister of Education in late April 2019.
We would be really grateful if you would be able to assist with letting your staff, board, PTA members, parents, whānau and wider school community know about the following:
Public consultation meetings: the Taskforce is now holding public consultation meetings around the country until Wednesday, 27 March. We really encourage everyone to come along to these events and discuss the future of our schooling system. The full schedule is now available on our website (venues will be added for events as they are confirmed): https://conversation.education.govt.nz/conversations/tomorrows-schools-review/have-your-say-today/ .
An online survey: this canvasses opinions on each of the 32 recommendations, is now available here: https://consultation.education.govt.nz/tsr/survey2019/ and will remain open until 31 March 2019. It will be available in Te Reo and other languages within the next week.
- A free 0800 number for oral submissions: call 0800 FOR TSR (0800 367 877) to leave your thoughts on the future of our schooling system.
- Postcards: for students, families and anyone who just wants to briefly ‘have their say’ on a recommendation or the full report. Freepost postcards will be available at the public meetings.
- Formal written submissions: these can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org .
We do appreciate your help in this matter. We want everyone to have their say and we want to do our very best to listen carefully to what is said.
