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. A date for this is to be confirmed.
