Due to the scale of change we are facing as a school and the contractual obligations of the RVS BOT with our staff, we have decided to close the school for a day in Week 8 this term. We will be meeting as a staff and Board of Trustees with NZEI*, NZSTA* and the MOE* as a part of the schools’ ongoing change from a Full Primary school to an Area school.
We are very aware of the disruption this causes and have not called for a Teacher Only day in over 5 years because of this. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
