It’s time to enjoy a welcome wind down after a crazily busy and pressured year

Wishing you all a safe and restful festive season.

Kia ora Koutou

Teachers are the heart of education. Our contribution makes it successful. As we reach the end of the school year, fill in the last forms, inquiry documents and testimonials and awhi the seniors concluding their exams, I hope we can all take a moment to recognise how important teachers are.

I hope that we feel acknowledged for our efforts and have the opportunity to acknowledge others - we deserve it. Our high-quality public education system is built on the hard work of teachers.

While the concept of holidays for teachers has become almost a myth, I sincerely hope you get some downtime over the summer break. It’s time to enjoy a welcome wind down after a crazily busy and pressured year. As educators we know that allowing ourselves time to reflect on the year and our achievements can help our emotional wellbeing and will be motivating for when we start all over again in 2018.

Nō reira, Tēnā koutou katoa. Ka rawe ou koutou mahi.

Nāku i roto i ngā mihi o te Kirihimete, nā.
