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 Monday 3 February, Tuesday 28 April, Friday 15 May and Monday 20 July - in line with Ministry of Education guidelines.
