Teacher Only Day - Tuesday 17 November

A Secondary Accord Sub-Group has been established to co-design and support the implementation of eight additional teacher only days allocated in an Accord between the Ministry of Education, NZEI Te Riu Roa and PPTA Te Wehengarua.

All schools and kura have been allocated eight additional teacher only days to use by the end of 2022.These eight days will not extend the school year.

These days are set aside to support the implementation of changes to NCEA, and wider strengthening of curriculum, progress and achievement practice.

The first of these days is Tuesday 17 November 2020.  There will be no classes for students. NCEA exams will run as scheduled.


Yours sincerely
