Long Bay College Board of Trustees and Senior Leadership Team are delighted with the results of the 2018 ERO report recently presented to the school by the Educational Review Office (ERO). The school has proudly received, for the second consecutive time, the maximum possible review period of 4 to 5 years, following the report. This is the platinum standard in New Zealand education with only 15% of schools achieving an extended review period and only half of those retaining it. Achieving this outcome is an indication of the quality of governance, leadership, systems, structures and most importantly, the quality education students are receiving at the College. The 2018 ERO report will be made available through ERO and the College’s websites in the next fortnight.

Volunteer readers and writers required

Long Bay College is seeking volunteers to help as readers and writers for students who require this important support for their 2018 formative and end of year exams. This would suit someone who has flexibility in their day. If you know of anyone who might be interested, please email our Head Of Learning Support, Glenda Keith for details: gkeith@lbc.school.nz. Many thanks in advance for your support!
