The application is a VERY thorough and well laid out document and explains our educational philosophy and planned direction well. It has several experienced, professional contributors and is the culmination of a year's work, as well as much experience and research.
I encourage you to come have a look through the application. A copy is in the RVS office for you to look through. I also wish to specifically thank several people for their input:
Kathy Taylor - For the huge amount of time and expertise she has put in.
Dr Ann Milne - For the section she wrote and the support and feedback she gave.
CSN Office - Thank you to Andy Van Ameyde & Marrianne Reinders of the Christchurch Christian Schools' Network (CSN) of which we are an associate member - For their experience and work.
The RVS BOT - Who are 100% committed and wise in their resourcing of this project and vision.
YOU! - For your vision and support. Over 90% of RVS parents returned their survey and all 100% were positive about the possibility of Christian High Schooling in Marlborough.
Do continue to pray for the application process. It would be a great thing to see a faith-based High School available in Blenheim. A school that is cutting edge in its approach to teaching and learning, is honouring of the importance of deep relationship in learning and seeks to consolidate the Christian World-view begun in the home.
