Industrial Action – PPTA Teachers' Strike on 27 March 2023

PPTA Teachers' Strike on 27 March 2023

27 March 2023

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

The PPTA has advised the Sacred Heart College Board that its member teachers at our school will be taking strike action on 29 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 student/s under 14 years of age during the period of the strike.  If making alternative arrangements for care is difficult, we can still supervise a small number of students if required.  Please email the office [email protected] if your student/s will need this. 

School transport will be running at the usual times. 

We know that this is inconvenient for parents and students alike. Please be assured that student safety is our main concern. 

Thank you for your understanding.

Yours sincerely

Richard Te One
Presiding Member
Sacred Heart College Board of Trustees
