NZEI Strike Action – Notice of School Closure Thursday 16 March 2023

18 Padnell Crescent Newlands Wellington 6037



Dear Parents and Caregivers

NZEI has advised the Rewa Rewa School Board that its member principal and teachers at our school will be taking strike action on Thursday 16 March 2023.  The Board has carefully considered the availability of non-union teaching staff and unfortunately, has decided that we cannot provide normal instruction during the strike.  So, the school will officially be closed for instruction on the day of the strike.

Accordingly, it is important that you make alternative arrangements for the care of your child/children under 14 years of age during the period of the strike, as no supervision can be provided.  We appreciate that this may be inconvenient for parents and students alike.  Please be assured that student safety is our main concern.  The Y is providing full-day childcare at Johnsonville School which our families can access for a fee.  Email or telephone 022 391 1479 for further information.

Thank you for your understanding.  Please email if you have any queries regarding to this decision.

Yours sincerely


Naomi Godfrey (Board Presiding Member)

On Behalf of the Rewa Rewa School Board
