Uniform survey results

Thank you to all those parents, students and staff who participated in the uniform survey. The purpose of this review was to determine whether key stakeholders in our School community thought that our uniform was still meeting its purpose, and whether adjustments to support comfort and equity were considered important by those in our community.

We had 874 responses with 421 of those being from parents. The opinions, as evident in the comments, were diverse although the pattern of responses was fairly consistent. A quick summary of responses is shown below:

In addition to these results, there were nearly 1000 comments providing further insight into some of the key issues. As a result of the survey, an Executive Working Team will review the results in detail in 2019 and explore opportunities to address the comfort and equity of the uniform provided. We will review the current uniform including the socks, dresses and sports uniform; explore some additional options to the uniform, and; consider changes to some of the uniform guidelines. We will conduct a number of focus groups with parents and students early in 2019 as we explore these opportunities; I hope that our parents will be willing to participate in this next stage and I look forward to working with them on this project.

 

Seaspray Public Bus each Thursday

Use it or Lose it, how often do we hear that?

 

But it’s a fact, if a service isn’t being used it will disappear. We need to continue to use the bus service and there are some great opportunities especially through the coming months to make use of our bus service. If you want to travel from Sale to Seaspray or Seaspray to Sale jump on board come down, come in. You can come down to the Surf Lifesaving Club to look at the view and have a quiet lunch, and drink. You can come to Sale for some retail therapy, doctors, or just have a lunch in one of the many restaurants. 

 

  • Come down to the patrolled beach over summer. Come up to the Lake and the river and enjoy all that Sale has to offer.
  • Have a fish on the lake or try your hand at Surf fishing. Come with the kids and camp at the Caravan Park and access all the facilities on offer.
  • The Bus is a great service and a great opportunity to spend some time in beautiful Seaspray or get away to Sale for some respite.
