Waiheke High looks for help improving its communications

Waiheke High School wants to be the best school it can be.  Our ‘Striving for Success’ project has given us a good understanding of how our community sees the school. The next step of that project is to work with the community to establish what ‘best school’ means for Waiheke.   We’ll need to work with students, parents, staff and the wider community to understand this, so it will take some time.  Watch out over the coming months for your chance to tell us what ‘best school’ means for you.

One of the messages that came through from the project was that we’re not always good at communicating.  We want to fix that as quickly as we can. So we’re looking for someone to review our communications and tell us how we can improve them.

We’re looking for a communications professional(s) who understands online, local and traditional media. Ideally they will understand the way the island grapevine works and will be familiar with schools and the communication challenges they face. This will be a short term project contract awarded to the best applicant.

Expressions of interest including a covering letter outlining why you are interested in the work and what you would bring to it along with a brief CV should be emailed to Brenda Harrington –harringtonb@waihekehigh.school.nz by Thursday 19 September. The Board of Trustees will then invite a short list of candidates to prepare a short proposal for the project.
