The Wellington High School PPTA branch unanimously passed the following resolution today:
"That the WHS PPTA branch supports the NZEI Support Staff claim against the Ministry of Education's offer."
Support staff are grossly underpaid and their skilled work allows us to focus on the learning needs of our students. Support Staff do not get paid during any of the school holidays and very few get any school time for professional development. They are largely expected to do it in their own time.
WHS would like other schools to support our colleagues and write to the Minister, Ministry of Education and NZEI as we are doing.
