During term 3 we have one Teacher Only day Friday 27th August 2021.
It was agreed that teachers and principals are entitled to a maximum of 8 teacher only days between 2019-2022 from the employment agreement negotiations in 2019 for the Primary Teachers’ Collective Agreement, the Primary Principals’ Collective Agreement, the Area School Teachers’ Collective Agreement, and the Area School Principals’ Collective Agreement.
These days are to provide teachers and principals with additional time to:
Refresh and deepen their knowledge and practice around the local curriculum
Strengthen their understanding of the use of assessment tools for learning and teaching
Respond to the recommendations of the education work programme in the Curriculum, Progress and Achievement (CPA) Report
Familiarise themselves with curriculum work changes that will become available over the term of the collective agreements.
