Teachers Union Meeting - Tuesday 15 November, students being released at 1.00 pm

The Teachers Collective Agreement expired in June of this year. The union is currently negotiating on behalf of teachers for a new agreement. The union has called for a meeting to give teachers a chance to hear an update on negotiations and to discuss which of our claims are to be prioritized the most. To do this effectively we need the chance to get together and make some decisions. We want the teaching profession to be an attractive and sustainable career option for great people. As usual, we are able to provide supervision for some students if you need it so email the school office or contact your child's teacher.
