Industrial Action – NZEI Strike on 16 March 2023

13 March 2023
Kia ora Whānau

The NZEI has advised the St James' Catholic School Board that its member Tumuaki/Principal and Kaiako/Teachers at our school will be taking strike action on Thursday 16 March 2023.

2023 മാർച്ച് 16 വ്യാഴാഴ്ച NZEI ഇൻഡസ്ട്രിയൽ സ്ട്രൈക്ക് ആക്ഷൻ കാരണം ഈ ദിവസം സ്കൂൾ അടച്ചിരിക്കും. സ്കൂളിൽ ക്ലാസുകൾ ഉണ്ടാകില്ല.

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 during the period of the strike as no supervision can be provided.

Nippers Before and After School Care will be open. For more details or please contact 06 356 7926 (Nippers Office) or 021 645 806 (on-site) or

School transport - If you use this service please inform your provider.

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

Yours sincerely
Chris McPhee
Board Presiding Member,
on behalf of the St James' Catholic School Board
