WPS Principles Notice - 29-05-23
Kia ora whanau / parents
Further to my message from yesterday, all teachers who are members of the Teachers' Union, NZEI, will be meeting on Wednesday 31 May from 1.00 - 3.00 p.m. to discuss a new offer. We only have one teacher who is not an NZEI member and so therefore the Board of Trustees has deemed it unsafe for Whangarei Primary School to remain open for instruction. Therefore, if possible, please can you pick up your child from school at 1.00 p.m. If this is not possible, students will be "supervised" in a classroom, watching a video, with an adult present.
The WPSSA sports day for Years 5/6 students has also had to be cancelled as a result - massive apologies for this inconvenience as I know several parents had offered their help supporting this wonderful opportunity.
Again, I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you - hopefully the offer the teachers will be discussing will be an acceptable one for them.
