Kia ora CBS families,
The NZEI Te Riu Roa union has advised the School Board that its member teachers at our school will be taking strike action on Thursday 16 March 2023. Formal notice of the strike is expected to be received on Monday.
We understand how incredibly disruptive it is to close the school and we have been considering how the school could remain open and accommodate the teacher absences on this day.
Unfortunately, with the number of NZEI members on staff, we have not been able to find a way to safely open for our students. So Campbells Bay School will be closed for instruction on Thursday 16th March.
Teachers have been negotiating their terms of employment with the Ministry of Education since May 2022 and we sincerely hope that an agreement between the Teachers and Ministry of Education can be reached soon.
Ngā mihi nui,
