Important Notice about Teacher Only Day at WPS

October 27, 2023

Friday, October 27th 

Dear Whanau.

The following is to make you aware of a Teacher Only Day that will take place on Tuesday, December 5th of this term.

The Ministry of Education has been working on a revised New Zealand Curriculum for some time now and has advised us to take this day so that teachers can be prepared to unroll the first stages of it in 2024. 

School will not be open for instruction on this day. We trust that by giving you this notice now, you will be able to make alternative arrangements for the care of your children.

We appreciate your understanding and look forward to the benefits of a day invested in better understanding these new developments within the curriculum. Please note that after School Care will not be available on this day.
