“Important Notice for All Parents and Caregivers -2012 Budget ‘Technology, Music and Art on the way out!! Intermediate schools are reeling with the news that the new teacher:student ratios will change in 2013. In the budget, the Government has made a savage cut to staffing of Intermediate schools and all year 7 and 8 students.
Currently, and for the last 80yrs we have received extra staffing for our specialist subjects, Music, Science, Art, Food, Fabric and Workshop tech based on 1 teacher for 120 pupils. THIS STAFFING WILL END as a result of the budget, meaning a loss of a number of teachers from our school, about 5. All over NZ, it would be 880 specialist teachers.
THE MINISTER IS BEING DECEITFUL when talking about lowering teacher:student ratios for yr 7 & 8. In fact THE OPPOSITE is happening. Those schools are LOSING teachers. We’ve been left utterly bewildered at how we are going to teach curriculum under the new regime. IT IS VERY SERIOUS FOR OUR SCHOOLS.
At Te Awamutu Intermediate, the students of our district enjoy excellent facilities and a comprehensive technology and arts programme. THIS SCHOOL WILL NOT HAVE THE STAFFING TO RUN THESE PROGRAMME OPTIONS NEXT YEAR.
OUR BEAUTIFUL FACILITIES AND OUR BRAND NEW DANCE AND DRAMA FACILITY, yet to open, WILL STAND IDLE!!!”
There were no cuts in defense spending in this budget.
DO SOMETHING. A START.
