In 2019 the NZEI Teachers Union won some Teacher Only Days (TODs) for all teachers that were able to be used for non-contact professional work for 8 days over the three year period of the Teacher's Collective Agreement. This was a small effort by the Government to recognise the wellbeing of Primary Teachers. The Tauriko School Board has approved Thursday 4 February, Friday 5 February, Monday 3 May and Monday 26 July - in line with Ministry of Education guidelines.
One more Teacher Only Day under this Collective Agreement will be scheduled to coincide with other schools in our Kahui Ako for Professional Learning. This date is Friday 2 July.
