Support offered to schools to finalise end-of-year payroll

Media release

More support offered to schools still to finalise end-of-year payroll reports

The Ministry of Education is reminding schools that have not yet sent in their end of year reports that further help is available if they need it.

Schools had until yesterday to finalise their reports, and Ministry Group Manager, Rebecca Elvy, says it is great that more than 80 per cent had their reports in by this morning.’

“This has been a tremendous effort by school payroll staff who had already been working really hard since the implementation of Novopay.

“I want to reassure the schools that haven’t quite got there yet that there is still time, and we have got people to help them get their reports in.

“Calls to schools are continuing today and if any payroll administrator is finding the process particularly difficult we can send an expert advisor to help them.”

Ms Elvy says a great deal of resource has been committed to working on the end of year reports to ensure staff are paid correctly ahead of the Christmas break.

“We know how critical this is, and will be using the time ahead of the December 12 pay date to work through any outstanding issues on the reports so that the pay round goes as smoothly as possible.”

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
