You will have seen or heard in the media that all primary school teachers and principals are taking strike action later this month.
This action has not been taken lightly, however there are real concerns about the small numbers training to become teachers (or choosing to remain in the profession after training), and also the levels of staffing and resourcing for children with additional learning needs. We need high quality teachers in front of an increasing school age population.
This means that Hokowhitu School will be closed on Wednesday 15 August. We ask that parents/caregivers DO NOT send your children to school that day - there will be no teachers on site.
