Welcome to Te Kura O Nga Raupareparenga, Glenholme School.
Glenholme School has a strong reputation for being a friendly, supportive environment while meeting the needs of our diverse learners. At Glenholme School we encourage our tamariki to use our Learning Dispositions. These are to be an Innovator, Risk Taker, Collaborator, Thinker and Self-Regulator. We have a successful values programme based around the themes of Respect, Integrity, Diversity and Excellence. Learning and student achievement are at the heart of everything that happens at Glenholme School. Staff and Board of Trustees ensure that we provide our students with the skill, will, and thrill, to become assessment capable learners.

Thursday 16th March Industrial Action

Mon Mar 13 02:36pm

Dear Parents and Caregivers,


Industrial Action – NZEI Strike on 16 March 2023. 

The NZEI has advised the Glenholme School Board that its member teachers at our school will be taking strike action on 16 March 2023. 

The Board has carefully considered the availability of non-union teaching staff, and unfortunately decided that we can’t provide normal instruction during the strike so the school will officially be closed for instruction on the day of the strike. 

Accordingly, it’s important that you make alternative arrangements for the care of your child/children under 14 years of age during the period of the strike as no supervision can be provided.

We know that this is inconvenient for parents and students alike. Please be assured that student safety is our main concern. Thank you for your understanding. 

Yours sincerely 

Jenny Packham

Board Presiding Member, on behalf of the Glenholme School Board

Thursday 16th March – Strike Day

Thu Mar 09 08:01pm

Our tamariki need a quality education. We want to give that to them. Unfortunately, the funding for our schools and kindergartens is not enough for us to give us the time we would like to support all our kids to thrive.

We need to attract and retain educators by ensuring that teaching is a valued and attractive profession.

Principals and teachers in primary and area schools and kindergartens have considered at length offers from the government to settle our respective collective agreements.

The offers did not meet our expectations, nor make sufficient steps towards the changes we need for our children to succeed.

You may have seen that we voted to take industrial action on 16 March.

It’s the last thing we wanted to do. And the decision was not taken lightly.

We felt that this was the only way the government would listen and recognise that when they support our children to learn and succeed, we are supporting whānau and communities to thrive.

We look forward to another great year in 2023 – and together with your support, building the case for better investment in our tamariki.

Kia ora koutou,
Thank you all for your support, keeping your children at home today. We hope that you are all safe.
A safety assessment has been done of our school site. We have spent the morning clearing away the damage. The school is now safe for our tamariki to return to school on Wednesday. The forecast looks much better for tomorrow.
