School Closed for Teacher and Principal Strike - 29 May 2019



School Closed for Teacher and Principal Strike, 29 May 2019 23 May 2019

Dear Parents and Caregivers The NZEI has advised the Pakuranga Intermediate Board of Trustees that the principal and teachers at our school will be taking strike action on Wednesday 29 May for the full day.

The Board has carefully considered the availability of teaching staff, and unfortunately decided that we can’t provide the normal teaching services during the strike so the school will officially be closed for instruction during the above times. 

Accordingly it’s important that you make appropriate alternative arrangements for the care of your child/children during the period of the strike as no supervision can be provided.

I know that this is inconvenient for parents and students alike, but please be assured that student safety is our main concern.

Thank you for your understanding.

Please contact the Principal if you have any queries relating to this decision.

Yours sincerely


Owen Sanders

Chairperson Board of Trustees

Pakuranga Intermediate School
