Listening to the views of our stakeholders is something about which I feel passionate. At our peril do we ignore the experience, opinions and ideas of the people who define our very existence!
We have recently invited all of our students, parents and staff to complete a questionnaire, seeking views about their experience of Thurston Community College. Relational Schools, an educational research organisation whose aim is to improve society by strengthening the quality of relationships in schools, will be helping us to analyse the responses. I look forward to sharing their findings and advice.
Students, parents and staff also talk to us daily about their views. More formally, students who are members of the House Councils and College Council meet regularly to discuss and share ideas for improving their experience.
