The Shine education initiative
Local decisions due next week will have important consequences for the ‘collective impact’ process proposed at the Shine summit in June 2013.
The Mayor has convened a workshop for the Boards of Trustees responsible for compulsory education in Porirua in the first week of June. On the following day City Councillors will determine the city response to submissions on the draft Long Term Plan 2015-2025.
The Shine response to the Long Term Plan aims to advance the ‘collective impact’ process by suggesting action that would support the Council proposal to place children and young people at the centre of city decisions. ltp_submission_may_2015
The priorities of the Shine summit include literacy for all new entrants, digital engagement through primary schools, and vocational pathways available to all young people.
These goals can only be met with civic commitment and strong connections among the various contributors.
The extent to which these and other educational priorities are supported by local democratic decision-making will probably be evident by the time you read your June edition of the Our Porirua e-Newsletter.
