On 13 June schools celebrated Support Staff Day, acknowledging the hard work of the backbone of every school.
The annual Support Staff Day is an initiative of the IEUA and the New Zealand Educational Institute (NZEI) TE RIU ROA, reflecting a resolution passed at the seventh Education International (EI) World Congress in 2015 to create a global celebration held every June known as World Support Staff Day.
Morning teas and lunches provided an opportunity for support and operational staff to get together and relax. At one school, members of the support staff received flowers, movie tickets and morning tea in recognition of their tireless work.
