From Iain Lees Galloway (MP): I’m a Labour Party M.P. and I think that we need better funding for support staff because every child deserves a world-class education!
We support staff and children’s learning.
They deserve job security. They help at risk children function in a mainstream environment.
We need realistic funding from the government.
We need a fair deal!
Our children deserve the best!
Lincoln Heights School teaching community stands behind NZEI’s negotiations for better funding for our support staff. Our students deserve more. Teachers deserve and need the support provided in our busy classrooms. Support staff deserve an increase in their hourly wages. New Zealand Educators are teachers and support staff together as teams we are making a difference for the future. We vote give the support team more pay now. They are value for money.
Student – they help me with my eating and drinking. They keep me safe.
they are a valuable part of the classroom for learning and support.
they help students engage in learning.
they deserve more.
their job is an emotionally and physically demanding.
Estelle – Teacher Aide Librarian : because Teacher Aides cannot be paid according to their salary band
Suz Bassett – Office Manager : because Support Staff are not paid in the holidays
Lynne Blumsohn – Teacher Aide : because I want to be valued for what I do. I get paid less than my son who washes dishes at a restaurant.
