Important notice:

Tenā koutou katoa

Teachers who are members of the Post Primary Teachers Association (PPTA) are entitled to attend two Paid Union Meetings each year. The Board of Trustees has been notified by PPTA that the Waihi Branch has scheduled it’s meeting for Thursday 5th March starting at 2.15pm.

This means that school will finish for the day at 1.30pm next Thursday 5th, to allow staff time to have their lunch before the meeting starts.

We have rescheduled classes on the day to allow all 4 lessons to be taught:

  • 8.45 - 9.00: Learning Advisory
  • 9.00 - 10.00: Period 1
  • 10.00 - 11.00: Period 2
  • 11.00 - 11.30: INTERVAL
  • 11.30 - 12.30: Period 3
  • 12.30 - 1.30: Period 4
  • 1.30 - 2.10: LUNCH/End of School Day

Buses will run at the normal times (3.20pm) and any students who cannot be supervised at home or have to wait for buses will be supervised in the College Library by non PPTA staff. I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause however employees are entitled to meet to discuss their employment conditions.
