Dear Parents/Caregivers,


Re: Argyll East School closed for strike action


The NZEI has advised the Argyll East School Board of Trustees that the principal and teachers at our school will be taking strike action for the full day on Wednesday 15th August 2018.


The Board has carefully considered the availability of teaching staff, and unfortunately decided that we cannot provide the normal teaching services during the strike. The school will need to close during this strike. 


It is important that you make alternative arrangements for the care of your child/children on the day of the strike.


We appreciate that this may be inconvenient for parents and students alike, but please be assured that student safety is our main concern. Thank you for your understanding and please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any queries relating to this decision. 


Yours sincerely,



Belinda Brans


Board of Trustees
