You will no doubt have seen or heard in the media that teachers and principals have voted for strike action on 15th August. At this stage, it is set as a half-day strike in the afternoon. However, currently, there is a ballot being undertaken for teachers and principals in the NZEI union to increase this to a full days strike to make the government take more notice. The North Otago Primary Principals Association wish to inform you of the reasons around the decision to strike. We don't take this action lightly.
Natalie Bedford and Ella Symes decided to do a bake sale at the end of the term to raise money for Cancer. The girls then presented the money raised to Leanne Kennard from the North Otago Cancer Society, a total of $376.70.
We are now selling an OIS sports hoodie. This is an optional sweatshirt that students can wear when representing Oamaru Intermediate School when playing sports.
With term 2 coming to an end I would have to say that I'm looking forward to the holidays. But more importantly as I look back I'm very grateful for the support from staff, parents and community that we have had throughout the term.
Congratulations to all those who competed in the sports exchange yesterday. A great day of sportsmanship and competitive sports was had by all who participated.
