You will be aware through the media that the PPTA (Post Primary Teachers’ Association) will continue industrial action during Term 2 or until the ongoing collective bargaining is resolved.
Similar actions are planned in term 2 as for term 1 which includes strike action on Thursday 11 May.
This email is to provide early notification of the school being closed on that day as we are unable from a Health and Safety perspective to provide adequate supervision for our students.
Certain days have been allocated for rostering year levels home. On these days the rest of the school will have normal classes:
Week 4: Tuesday 16 May – Year 9, Wednesday 17 May – Year 10
Week 7: Tuesday 6 June – Year 10, Thursday 8 June – Year 9
The school intends to continue to offer our normal curriculum and other educational opportunities as we operate within the constraints provided by the union and Ministry of Education.
As stated before I wish to thank the community for its patience. This process is beyond our control and we trust the situation will be resolved amicably as soon as possible.
