Supporting Our Principals
Many of you may have seen our staff dressed in green today. This was to show unified support today, alongside other schools across New Zealand for Primary and Intermediate Principals.
Principals do an amazing job for their schools and communities, and they deserve to be recognised for their considerable skills and responsibilities.
We need to value and support this role, so teachers actually want to become Principals – especially in our small and rural schools and kura. If pay parity is fair for teachers, as the government has acknowledged, then surely it is fair for Principals too.
