Thank you to the 185 families and individuals who responded to the school times survey.
The responses indicated a preference to change the school times. The East Waikiki School Council has recommended a trial of option A.
8.30am start and a 2.30pm finish for students.
This trial will be for term 3 and 4 of 2020 and will be reviewed in term 4. The key points of the decision are:
*** No face to face teaching times have been changed.
***Recess and lunch times will be shortened, which may lessen the negative behaviour.
***Students will be more engaged in learning without the issues that are bought up by long break times.
*** Breaks will start at a similar time to the present model
*** No early close
