Dear Parents and Caregivers, as you may be aware, the department have been advised that Australian Education Union (AEU) members have voted YES to undertaking industrial action on Monday 1 July 2019 in the form of a full day strike.
In response to this action as site leader, I am guided by the direction and information provided by my Education Director and the department’s procedure for managing industrial action.
This currently involves determining the impact this action will have on program delivery at Craigburn Primary School on Monday 1st July, which will vary depending on the number of members taking industrial action.
Once this is known, I will work quickly with our Education Director to determine whether adequate standards of student safety and welfare can be provided and whether our school will either be:
- Open – with usual education programs, or
- Open – with modified/limited education programs, or
- Closed – with no education programs available
As soon as this decision is made, information will be communicated to enable you to make any necessary arrangements.
We will also be in a position to inform you of the availability of our OSHC service pending this outcome.
Please contact the school if you have any questions regarding this information.
Paul Luke – Principal
