Term One Week 6
The PPTA's 20,000 members throughout NZ will be striking on Thursday 16 March. This strike action is being taken after months of failed negotiations with the Ministry of Education. Teachers are striking for salaries increased to match inflation, more guidance staff to work with increasing numbers of rangatahi struggling with mental health and social issues, greater recognition of kaiako Māori, and effective controls on teachers' workloads.
There are no timetabled classes on this day, however should a student require supervision we have non union staff who are available. Please contact your House Dean if required.

We are excited to announce the following girls are a part of the HGHS 2023 School Council. This year we had more applicants than we anticipated and more than we had positions for. This made the decision even harder! If you have any ideas or issues you would like the School Council to resolve, please email me, Noorpreet: firstname.lastname@example.org.
