This letter is to inform you of the PPTA’s decision to instruct its members not to teach certain year levels of the College as part of their on-going industrial action. This is referred to as a rostering home plan.
We have been informed that the PPTA have told its members that they must not teach students in Year 11 and 12 on Tuesday 20 June.
De La Salle College have looked at ways of keeping our rostered home students at school on this day but we are unable to provide enough teachers for all our Year 11 and 12 classes on Tuesday.
This means that our Year 11 and 12 students will not have classes this Tuesday 20 June and will stay at home and continue to work online.
Year 12 students who are Timetabled for the Outdoor Education Ropes Course are expected to be present every day this week.
Year 11 and 12 students may still come to school on Tuesday to study in the College Library which will be available for them to use as a quiet study space.
Year 11 and 12 students coming to school to study are expected to meet the College expectations for punctuality, grooming and uniform.
After school sports practices will still go ahead on Tuesday for all teams.
Apologies once again for this further disruption to our teaching programme which is out of the College’s control. I appreciate how disruptive this can be for families and our young
We are doing all that we can to keep to our normal routines and structure for our young men and their families.
