I am blown away by how huge of a project the entire school has contributed to making a success. Teachers have posted student work, assignments, forms for parent information, student made videos and individual portfolios. The blog also provides information about applying for jobs and other school/district resources. It is truly the motherload of school blogs.
Displaying student work motivates students to work hard and create quality work that they are proud for the whole world to see. The video of the student assembly shows the school is dedicated to communicating with parents. The posts are very diverse, allowing all types of learners to display their creativity.
New Zealand must have fewer restrictions on posting pictures of students on the internet, or the school must have gone to extreme measures to get permission from all of the students' parents.
Overall, this blog in impressive and I applaud the amount of effort and dedication required from staff, students, and parents.
