In July 2017, Punahou School invited all constituents who receive the printed Bulletin to participate in a readership survey. We received nearly 3,000 responses to questions ranging from, “To what degree do you consider the Punahou Bulletin to be a credible source of information about the institution?” to “How often do you read the Punahou Bulletin?”
We were pleased to find the feedback overwhelmingly positive. We learned that 65 percent of respondents read every issue of the Bulletin, and 62 percent of respondents spend at least 30 minutes with each issue.
Sixty-five percent of respondents say they prefer to read the Bulletin in print, while 26 percent of respondents prefer having both print and online options.
The open-ended questions provided insight into the types of articles readers enjoy and what topics they want to see addressed in the future: Stories about School traditions and archival photos are of great interest, as well as a desire for more photos of campus.
Respondents enthusiastically shared that the Punahou Bulletin keeps them connected to their classmates and to the School and – as expected – Class Notes ranked the highest among topics of interest.
We sincerely appreciate the attention respondents gave to the survey and will incorporate suggestions and ideas into future issues of the Bulletin.
