Rostering Home PPTA Strike
Friday, 5th May 2023 at 2:15pm
UPDATE! 22 May, 9.00am: PPTA Industrial Action has been suspended until midnight 30 May - therefore there is NO Rostering Home for Year 11 (25 May) and Year 13 (30 May).
As published in our weekly school newsletter over the past few weeks, there are some important dates that you need to be aware of as the secondary school teachers nationwide, who are members of the PPTA, take more industrial action.
Across term two, teachers and staff who are PPTA members will refuse to give up scheduled planning and marking time to relieve for absent teachers or positions that are vacant and will also not attend meetings outside regular school hours.
As part of the industrial action, year groups will be rostered home on particular days across term two. There will also be rolling strikes nation-wide, the Auckland strike day will be on Thursday 11 May and school will be closed for instruction for all students. If your child requires supervision, at school, please contact Deputy Principal Sandy Begg via email (or phone 817-8173 ext 216) to make arrangements.
Year groups will be rostered home on the following days:
- Tuesday 16 May
- Thursday 8 June
- Wednesday 17 May
- Tuesday 6 June
- Thursday 4 May
Thursday 25 May
- Tuesday 9 May
- Thursday 1 June
Tuesday 30 May
You can find out more about the strike on the PPTA website, www.ppta.org.nz
We are hopeful that there will be a positive resolution between the Ministry of Education and the PPTA, so that we can get back into the rhythm of school life.
