Dear Parents and Students,

TWO BIG EVENTS IN THE NEXT 7 DAYS !!

CANTEEN CHANGES - AUGUST 13

Last week an email about changes to our canteen organisation was sent to all families via linc-ed. Please find here a link to that email

Both EZ lunch and Munchbox will be offering their options for you to choose from. Clicking on the pictures will take you to further information on our website. 

The orders for lunch can be made by visiting the home page of our website www.wgp.school.nz and clicking on the “Food Orders” tab at the bottom of our list of tabs.

Please note

  • The time deadlines for placing orders with each of the providers.
  • Munchbox deliver their food before the first break = 10.45am. EZ lunches deliver their food at 12.45pm, before the second break.
  • A staff member will be at the hall to receive the food orders, put the orders in a class bin and give them to the class lunch monitors, who deliver the food to the classes.

With changes to the food regulations and health and safety requirements, Alison Williams, our canteen manager has handed in her resignation. This prompted us to look at these different options. We will farewell Alison next Friday, August 10. Alison has served our community for many years and has been extremely committed to offering our parents and children a friendly, cheerful, reliable and varied selection of food options. We will miss her.

      

STRIKE - ALL DAY WEDNESDAY 15 AUGUST

The NZEI, which is the teachers union, has advised the Whangaparaoa School Board of Trustees that teachers from our school will be taking strike action for a full day on Wednesday 15 August 2018. This is a nationwide strike. Please respect the teachers legal right to take strike action in support of improving education for children, teacher shortages, workplace conditions and other serious issues facing schools.
The Board has carefully considered the availability of teaching staff, and we are unable to provide enough teaching cover during the strike. The school will therefore need to close for the day.
It is important that parents make alternative arrangements for the care of your child/children on the day of the strike. We know that this is inconvenient for parents and students alike, but please be assured that student safety is our main concern.

Whangaparaoa School After School Care will operate on the 15 August 2018 for the Teachers Strike Day.

If you have any queries relating to this decision please direct them here – trustees@wgp.school.nz

Yours sincerely,
Brad Gibbons
On behalf of the Whangaparaoa School Board of Trustees
