Teachers Union Meeting: Friday 9 September, 1:30 - 3pm
The primary and secondary teachers unions are calling joint whole-of-sector paid union meetings for teachers to get informed about the proposals and decide on their next steps. Both the unions, with support from the primary, secondary and intermediate principal groups have united in their opposition to the proposal point number 4 (see below). This global budget proposal would let schools trade funding for teachers for money they could then spend on other things.
While school officially remains open all students are encouraged to be picked up from 1pm onwards. There will only be a skeleton staff available to supervise students in the hall or library for the last hour after lunchtime on that Friday. (Note: The bus will still run at 3pm).
Please indicate to your child's teacher what works best for your circumstance by filling out the form below and sending back to school for each child and their relevant home room teacher (paper copy sent home).
Tim is available if you would like to discuss these proposals and what it could mean for our school. While he is around school most days the specific times he is available for this are: Friday 2 September: 3-4pm; Monday 5 September: 2.30-3.30pm & after FOS meeting @ 7pm; Tuesday 6 September: 5:15-6pm; Wednesday 7 September: 3-4pm
