We will be practising for most of next week, starting  with a dress rehearsal at 9.00am on Monday morning.  Please give your children an extra portion for breakfast and some dry snacks, as we will be having a late morning tea and don’t want yoghurt etc all over their costumes.

A big thanks to all the parents who have assisted with our preparation so far.  If you can help in any way, please contact your child’s teacher or Mrs Buxton.  rbuxton@shsinv.school.nz

Futsal – Well done to Jordis Murray, who got ‘player of the day’ at the first game of Futsal.



Principals Collective Agreement not yet settled
Teachers recently won pay parity with their secondary colleagues, because a teacher is a teacher, regardless of the age of their students. But the government refused to give primary and intermediate principals parity with principals of comparably sized secondary schools, or any support for growing workloads. In small schools, principals are doing a complex job but often without any extra support, and while teaching as well. And these principals are often paid less than some teachers in large schools.
