Industrial Action – PPTA Teachers’ Strike on 29th March.

March 26, 2023

Kia ora koutou whānau

The PPTA has advised the Mana College Board that its member teachers at our school will be taking strike action on 29th March 2023.

The Board has carefully considered the availability of non-union teaching staff, and unfortunately decided that we can’t provide normal instruction during the strike so the school will officially be closed for instruction during the above times. Accordingly, it’s 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.

If making alternative arrangements for care is difficult, we can still supervise a small number of students if required. Please contact the office or send a note to indicate if your child/children will need this by the end of day Monday 27th March.

Thank you for your understanding. Please contact John Murdoch if you have any queries relating to this decision at
