NZEI Teacher / Principal Strike on Thursday 16 March 2023
Dear Parents and Caregivers
The teachers’ union known as the New Zealand Educational Institute (NZEI) has notified all schools in New Zealand that their members will be taking strike action tomorrow, Thursday, 16 March.
Although we won’t have enough teachers to open all classrooms, we can open for ‘supervision only’ for parents that cannot make alternative arrangements for childcare.
If you are unable to make other arrangements, please drop your child at school at 8:30 am, no earlier please. Children who are attending school tomorrow will need to go to the School Hall. Pick up at 3:00 pm will also be from the School Hall.
If you require before school or after school care, please contact the YMCA. Before School care runs from 7:00 – 8:30 am and After School Care runs from 3:00 – 6:00 pm. Go to their website at https://www.ymcanorth.org.nz/programmes/before-and-after-school-care/.
If you have a standing order with EzyLunch and your child will not attend school, please remember to cancel your child’s order before 9:00 am on Thursday.
We thank you for your support.

Principal Presiding Member, Board of Trustees
