The teachers’ union, NZEI, has notified schools they are holding paid union meetings, during the day , in June for their members. The meeting for our school will be on Tuesday 19 June. A Paid
Union Meeting is a legal entitlement under section 26 of the Employment Relations Act 2000.

Whilst we understand that this is an inconvenience for many families, this is a right for teachers and support staff who are union members, so we need to plan for the fact that they will not be here that afternoon.

Whilst the school will remain open, we encourage parents to make arrangements for their children to be collected between 12.15 and 12.30pm on Tuesday 19 June. From 12.00-3.00pm there will be limited supervision and the usual class programmes will not be running.

Children will only be able to leave early if they are collected by an approved adult or it we have a signed form saying that they can walk/ride/bus home. Any children without a signed form from their parents will stay at school until 3.00pm as per usual.

About Kidz OSCAR will be open earlier for the afternoon for those students who are usually booked to attend on a Tuesday. Please contact Tanya, the About Kidz supervisor, to let her know if your child will need care from 12.00pm on that day.
