St Joseph's Catholic School Onehunga - 11 March 2023

Industrial Action – NZEI Strike on 16 March 2023

The NZEI has advised the St Joseph’s Catholic School Board that its principal and teachers at our school will be taking strike action on 16 March 2023.

The Board has carefully considered the availability of non-union teaching staff and unfortunately decided that we can’t provide normal instruction during the strike so the school will officially be closed for instruction on the day of the strike. Accordingly, it’s important that you make alternative arrangements for the care of your child/children under 14 years of age during the period of the strike as no supervision can be provided.

We know that this is inconvenient for parents and students alike. Please be assured that student safety is our main concern.

Thank you for your understanding. Please contact Presiding Member Stan Duarte if you have any queries relating to this decision.

Yours sincerely
Board Presiding Member,
Stan Duarte
on behalf of the St Joseph’s Catholic School Board
