You may be aware from media reports that teaching unions belonging to the Northern Ireland Teaching Council have announced a half day strike to take place on Wednesday 29th November 2023. As a result of the strike, school will be closed until 12.00pm. Dinner will still be served as usual with orders taken on Tuesday. Whilst the strike action is, of course, focussed on Teachers' Pay, it is also to highlight the ongoing seismic cuts to the Education budget which is forcing schools to try and operate on a shoestring budget. Whilst we regret the disruption to your child's education, we hope that you can understand the rationale behind the action.
