Welcome to Pigeon Mountain School

We are a large Decile 8 contributing State Primary School catering for students from Year 0 to Year 6

Dear Parents,

We learnt yesterday that members of the main teachers’ union, the NZ Education Institute (NZEI) has balloted its members on a full-day of strike action on Wednesday 15th August.  As a result, our Board have made the decision to close the school on this day. Strike action, unless cancelled in the coming 2 weeks through mediation, will be the first time since 1994 that teachers have taken this measure. As educators, with a commitment to our students and community, we appreciate and regret the inconvenience this day will cause.  However, the difficulties we are facing recruiting teachers, finding relievers, and staffing our schools need to be addressed in the best interests of our learners.
