NZEI Union Meeting


The NZEI have called a paid union meeting for teaching staff on Thursday 9th May, 2019 – as good employers we are required to provide the opportunity for teachers to attend.

As a result, school will be finishing early at 12:45pm on this day to allow staff to attend this meeting.

I would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your support.

This meeting will discuss how we can best get the support of the government to allow teachers to minimise some of the wider expectation and focus on teaching and learning.

Nga mihi ra,

Jerry Leaupepe


Scheduled NZEI Meeting (Thursday 21st March) Postponed

Dear whanau,

Due to the recent tragic events in Christchurch, at the request of member leaders in Christchurch, NZEI’s National Executive have decided to postpone all primary paid union meetings this week, therefore, it will be business as usual on Thursday, we will not be finishing early.

The NZEI will inform us as to when the next union meeting will be held.

We would like to thank you for your patience and continued support.
