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 9 and 13 on Wednesday 21st 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 non-union teachers for all our Year 9 and 13 classes on Wednesday.
This means that our Year 9 and 13 students will not have classes this Wednesday 21st June and will stay at home and continue to work online.
Year 9 and 13 students may still come to school on Wednesday to study in the College Library which will be available for them to use as a quiet study space.
Please contact the College Associate Principal Mr English (EnglishD2@delasalle.school.nz) if you cannot provide supervision for your son on Wednesday and intend sending him to school to complete on-line work.
Year 9 and 13 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 Wednesday for all teams.
Apologies once again for this further disruption to our teaching programme which is beyond the College’s control, I appreciate how disruptive this can be for families and our young men’s learning.
