Raise our school's profile in the community
Glenview School

Estimated Time: 16 - 20 Hours Over 1 - 2 Months

Glenview School are seeking a volunteer to support us to develop a comprehensive strategy to raise our profile in the community and communicate our strengths and successes. Our physical location means we are somewhat hidden away, many in the community do not know that we exist. We know we have a successful 'product' : we provide a transformative holistic education for our students - we want to communicate this so families can make an informed choice about schooling for their children in Porirua East. Our size and funding mean that staff are extremely time poor and financial resources are stretched. Your help would be invaluable. This could be a small team effort if preferable.

Our address is 106 Bedford Street, Cannons Creek, Porirua East - but we're flexible about when or where any work, meetings etc would happen

What We Have In Place

- Strategic Plan: 2019 Annual Plan - for the school, within our charter
- Website https://www.glenviewporirua.school.nz/ (Wix)
- Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/Glenview-School-Porirua-East-167637936586149/ (but this is a business page and we don't really know how to maximise its use)
- Logo, letter head strips etc
- a parent with experience in graphic design
- enthusiastic staff and board members
(our main restrictions are lack of time and expertise (eg social media / digital media) and need to help to find ways around this - perhaps making use of future Helptank projects for some of the projects within the strategy)
