The results from recent school-wide survey sent out in December 2014 showed an overwhelming need for study spaces, particularly from students currently in the MYP Programme. The Student Council has been working to try and find solutions for this problem, and the new Study Space is now being offered.

Student Council Survey

From the recent Student Council survey sent out in December of last year, we detected a recurring theme that there were issues around a lack of leisure space. It was apparent that many people were unaware or has a lack of information about the exciting changes that are taking place on the foreshore within the next few months. While information was placed on the Explorer, we realise that very few students are active readers, and so are not reached by this. As a result we have set up this new and accessible Student Council blog page (linked to Ding!) in order to keepĀ you, the people who most impacted by changes in the school, updated.
