Thankfully, it would appear, the attack on rural schools is over for now. However, the main issue for us as a school was the implementation of the new language curriculum. This is due to be rolled out in Juniors next September 2016. Based on discussions, I now think that this will be pushed back to 2017 or 2018, as we have not been provided whole school training yet.
Similarly, as always, class sizes and funding were discussed. Hopefully we will see improvements in the next 12 months.
