Strike Action on Wednesday 29 May

Dear Parents and Caregivers
The PPTA has advised the Board of Trustees of Waikato Diocesan School for Girls that teachers at our school will be taking strike action on Wednesday, 29 May 2019
After careful consideration, the Board has decided that, due to the unavailability of teaching staff, it would be impracticable for the school to remain open for formal instruction on the day of the proposed strike.  However, we will offer supervised study to those students who are unable to make alternative arrangements for care. Please ring Student Services (ext. 2755) to notify us by Tuesday, 28 May if your daughter will be in attendance the following day.
Boarders who remain at school will be supervised in the day school during school hours (8.30am - 3.30pm). Leave requests for boarders during this time, will need to be submitted to the respective House Parent via Boardingware, as per normal. 
It may be helpful to note that Wednesday 29 May is the Teacher Strike Day, Thursday 30 May is a normal school day, Friday 31 May is a pre-planned Teacher Only Day/ Exeat and Monday 3 June is a public holiday.
I appreciate that this strike closure may be an inconvenience for parents and students alike and thank you for your assistance.  Please contact me if you have any questions relating to the Board’s decision.
Yours sincerely

Mary Curran
