Notification of Paid Union Meeting.

The NZEI Te Riu Roa (teachers and principals union) is planning to hold paid union meetings for all NZEI Te Riu Roa members in March.  This affects St Martins School on Wednesday March 20th.  As the majority of staff at our school are union members, they will be attending this meeting at 2pm.  We ask that you please collect your children at 12.30 pm on this day. 

Teacher Only Day – March 25th 

There will be a Teacher Only Day on Monday March 25th.  Our teachers are attending a day long workshop which will look at strategies for dealing with complex behaviour issues and give them good strategies to support learning and behaviours.  We are fortunate that our teachers have access to these kinds of resources and it will be very valuable to have the day focusing on this. The school will be closed for tuition and supervision.  We hope that you are able to make arrangements for the care of your children.

Parent Information Evening

We are also holding a parent information evening on Monday March 25th that we encourage you to attend. Kathryn Berkett will be speaking on understanding the impact of screen time – a neuroscience session. Please see flyer attached for more information. Please note there is no cost to attend, and it has been designed for delivery to parents and caregivers. Email if you will be, or hope to be attending.
