Area School Teachers to strike – Wednesday 29 May 2019

Area School Teachers have voted to join their primary and secondary teacher colleagues and strike on Wednesday 29 May  

PPTA and NZEI notified the school of this decision today.

As we are an Area School, we will now be affected by the upcoming strike action.

As a result of this action, and with most of the learning advisors being members of either NZEI or PPTA, I have made the decision to close the school for instruction but remain open for supervision only on Wednesday 29 May from 9am to 3pm.

We will be considerably understaffed for this day and would appreciate your support by not bringing your child into school if this is at all possible.  

Just to reiterate, there will be no formal instruction on the day of the strike, with only supervision provided.

Steven Mustor – Director
