As some of you may already know, primary school principals across the country recently voted to reject the government’s offer for settlement of their ongoing contract negotiations. In the eyes of the principals, the government have failed to make an offer that addresses their key concerns – most specifically looking to achieve parity with secondary school principals.
As a sign of their concern, principals have voted to withdraw the goodwill they extend to the Ministry of Education. This goodwill is typically on top of their day-to-day responsibilities in running their schools.
What does this mean for us?
With support from the CPDS board, Janine will not be participating in any form of work programme, taskforce, meeting with or reporting to, the Ministry of Education between July 8 and August 16. She will continue in her professional leadership of the school during this time, and we anticipate no detrimental impact on the education, support or wellbeing of children during this time as a result of this action.
Principals remain hopeful that the government will hear and address their issues, and are committed to continuing their campaign until they do.
Janine has asked me to express her gratitude for the support that our parent community has shown to her to date throughout the campaign.
Thank you for your understanding and support of our principal. I wholeheartedly believe in fairness and equality, and support the principals in getting an appropriate settlement.
If you have any questions or comments, then please do get in touch and I’d be happy to discuss with you.
