The Secondary Teachers’ Union (PPTA) have announced that they intend to take industrial strike action on Wednesday 29th May.
The St Thomas’ School Board of Trustees has made the decision that St Thomas’ will not be open for instruction on this day as there would be insufficient teachers to cover the number of students on our roll.
We are currently unsure whether inter-school sport will go ahead on Wednesday 29th May, but will inform you of the decisions made by the organisers closer to the strike day.
Formal notice of this strike will be received three days before, but we wanted to give our community as much time as possible to enable plans to be made for that day.
We realise this may be inconvenient for many parents and caregivers and we thank you for your understanding and support.
