Third Strike for Climate Change – Friday, 27th September
The school will be open and operating as normal. If you are prepared to allow your child(ren) to go to a strike event it is entirely up to you. If your student(s) choose(s) to Strike for Climate Change the school must be notified of their absence in the usual manner, i.e. leave a message on the absence line or email email@example.com.
Please note that the event is entirely organised outside the school. We cannot supervise students at local or Auckland events as we will be still teaching all those who are at school. We are open for instruction as per normal.
Awareness of the environment and our place in it is an important aspect of the New Zealand Curriculum (NZC) and one of the aims of the NZC is to educate students to be connected to the land and environment, and to contribute to the social, cultural, economic and environmental wellbeing of New Zealand.
As parents, you will need to make your own assessment of whether your child(ren) should go. If your student(s) choose to do so, our advice would be that the point of the strike is to visibly make your voice heard.
If your student(s) are not going to an event, they should be at school. Please note that Friday is the final day of Term 3 and the school will then be closed for two weeks of holidays. School will reopen on Monday, 14th October at 8.30am.
