Results from Parent Survey

Thank you for submitting your responses to the Parent Survey about priorities for School Council funding this year. We've compiled the results, and the following FOUR priorities were identified as most important to Bowmore families, by votes:
  • Music (ie accompanist, instruments)
  • Math & Science (ie Scientists in the Classroom)
  • Literacy (ie library resources, author visits)
  • Arts (ie Artists in the Classroom, Prologue Theatre)
We will take these priorities into account when determining allocation of School Council funds. We will still consider other funding requests, however extra weight will be given to these areas of priority, in accordance with parent wishes.
