(postpone)ROAR 8

[3 Feb 1:10 p.m. update]

Dear Parents

Thank you for registering for the upcoming ROAR parent feedback session scheduled for this Saturday 8th February. Unfortunately, due to the current health situation we will need to postpone this event. This also means that that Community Engagement Group (CEG) meeting will also be postponed.

Thank you for showing interest in this event, and we hope to catch up with you all at a time later this term.

Please take care.

Kind Regards

An invitation for our parents to ‘ROAR’ again in 2020!



Our goal is to make KGV an even better school for the students and community that we serve. We believe that parent feedback is a great way to help us priorities the issues that matter.

Since September 2017, we have held a remarkable seven ROAR events that have providing a wonderful opportunity for parents and the school to come together as a community to share our thoughts, ideas and concerns.  To kick off 2020 and a new decade, we are planning to hold ROAR 8 on Saturday 8th February from 9.30am to 11.00am in the Learning Resource Centre at KGV School.

ROAR stands for ‘Reach Out, Appreciate, Respond’ in terms of:

  • Reach Out – to our parent community to build connections and seek ideas
  • Appreciate – and celebrate what great things are already happening and how together, we can add value
  • Respond – to the ideas we generate with action and outcomes

The focus of ROAR 8 will be to:

  • Provide opportunities for parents to share ideas and feedback an how we could make KGV an even better school as we move into this new decade;
  • Seek feedback on current issues and initiatives such as common formative task feedback, parent teacher nights, subject options processes and home learning provision during the recent school suspension.

We are excited to hear the parent voice ‘ROAR’ on Saturday 8th February from 9.30am to 11.00am. Please go to the link here or below to register. Light refreshments will be provided at the event.

Kind Regards
