FRIENDLY REMINDER: COMMUNITY NOTICE NZEI Strike Action – School Closed – Thursday 16 March (TOMORROW)

Kia Ora Parents/Caregivers and Whaanau 

As you are aware NZEI Te Riu Roa have advised that the teachers have voted to strike next Thursday 16th March (tomorrow).  Our Board have carefully considered the availability of non-union teaching staff to cover classes however have decided that we can not safely remain open and will therefore close the school for instruction. It is important that you make alternative arrangements for the care of your child/children during the period of the strike as no supervision can be provided. 

We are disappointed that again this year we are needing to close and apologise for any inconvenience for our whaanau. 

Please be assured that safety is our main concern and we have considered this carefully. 

If you are unable to make arrangements please contact Bernice Mata’utia directly on
