Strike action – Thursday 16th March 2023. School closed

Fri Mar 10 02:50pm

Kia ora Spreydon Whānau,

The New Zealand Educational Institute (NZEI) the largest education trade union in New Zealand, has informally advised the Te Kura o Mōkihi Spreydon School Board of Trustees that the principal and teachers at our school will be taking strike action for the full school day on Thursday 16th March 2023.
Confirmation of this will come on Monday but we wanted to provide whānau early notification. 

The Board has carefully considered the availability of teaching staff, and unfortunately decided that we won’t be able to provide the normal teaching services during the strike. It’s important that you make alternative arrangements for the care of your child/children on the day of the strike.

The school will close for instruction during this strike.  I know that this is inconvenient for parents and students alike, but please be assured that student safety is our main concern.

For the parents/caregivers of children currently enrolled in Kidsbase, they have advised us that they will be closed on this day.

Thank you for your understanding. Please contact the school office if you have any queries relating to this decision.

Yours sincerely
Beccy Warwick
Presiding Member

Mihi Whakatau

We will be holding our welcome to our new students and families at a special Mihi Whakatauki on  Thursday 9th March at 2.15pm.

It is our chance to offically welcome all our new families to Spreydon School. It is a great way to meet other new families.

The Mihi Whakatau will take place in our Pakoko-Hall, however if the weather is suitable it may take place outside in our Kapakapa space.

What is a Mihi Whakatau?

A Mihi Whakatau is a traditional Māori welcome. It literally means to settle. This ceremony is our way of welcoming new students and staff, along with their families into the Spreydon School Community.  

At our Mihi Whakatau new students and their whānau are welcomed in and are presented with a new seed to signify the new journey that the students, staff and whānau are embarking on by joining Spreydon School.

Seesaw is a platform for student engagement that inspires students of all ages to do their best, and saves teachers time! Students use creative tools to take pictures, draw, record videos and more to capture learning in a portfolio. Teachers find or create activities to share with students.The Seesaw platform is used for homework activities as well as in class work. Parents are also notified by the class teacher about classroom and school activities and events via the Seesaw platform. Parents can also Seesaw their child’s teacher. Families only have access to their child’s journal. This means you will see student work tagged with your child’s name and posts the teacher tags with ‘Everyone’. Families will also be able to see any comment made by another user on their child’s journal posts. Download the app or open Seesaw here
