As you have likely seen on the news it has been confirmed that there will be a strike of both PPTA and NZEI members on Wednesday 29 May. While the government has encouraged schools to remain open if safe to do so, the Senior Leadership Team and Board of Trustees at SWIS does not believe there will be sufficient staff available to do so while providing a safe student to adult ratio. This means that SWIS will be closed on Wednesday 29 May and other arrangements will need to be made for the care of your child on this day.
The negotiation teams continue to meet in an effort to reach an agreement and avoid the strike. We will keep you informed on progress in this area as it comes to hand.
