WPS Important Notice from our Principal 26th May 2023

May 26, 2023

Kia ora koutou whanau / parents

Teachers and Principals are currently in negotiations with the Government around work conditions and pay, and we are hoping that an agreement can be settled this weekend. If however, an agreement cannot be settled on, the the Teachers Union has stated that teachers will be striking on Wednesday 31 May. This will mean that you will need to keep your children at home on that day. We will not find out about this decision until late afternoon on Sunday 28 May. When I find out what is happening I will ensure that I communicate it to you as soon as possible.

I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause - we are all hoping for the best outcome, which will be an improved offer that values our teaching profession.
