Arising from recent employment negotiations it was agreed by NZEI and MOE that Teachers and Principals are entitled to 8 teacher-only days over the next 3 years. These will be used to deepen knowledge around curriculum and assessment tools for learning and teaching. Frankley School will be using 3 of these days in 2020. As we use outside providers for Professional Learning we have to work around their availability. Thank you for your support.

Thanks for a wonderful 2019. Meri Kirihimete, Merry Christmas, have a super summer and enjoy time with friends and whānau in our wonderful province.
