Christmas pay assurance for school staff

Christmas pay assurance for school staff

The Ministry of Education is assuring staff in schools that work is underway to make sure they receive their Christmas pay on time.

Group Manager, Rebecca Elvy, says the Ministry is working with the company providing the Novopay payroll system to ensure the Christmas pay process goes smoothly.

“I can assure school staff that both the Ministry and Talent2 are fully committed to getting the payments right and in bank accounts on time.

“We realise it is a very important time of year for people and know their holiday plans are dependent on receiving their pay.”

Ms Elvy says school administrators are working hard to ensure their end of year reports for Christmas payments are in by Wednesday, November 21.

“The majority of school staff will continue to be paid as usual, but this particular process impacts a group of about ten thousand teachers who are fixed term or long-term relievers, and most support staff. It also impacts on any staff who are going to work in a new school next year.”

Ms Elvy says there will still be some time before payments are made to resolve outstanding issues from the cut-off date of November 21.

“We know school payroll staff have already put a great deal of work in with Novopay and we’re pleased some schools have already sent their reports in.

“I’d encourage any payroll administrator who might have questions or need a bit more assistance to get in touch with Novopay staff as soon as possible. We know they want to do everything they can to help us get this right for staff.’’

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
