More than 1,500 schools called to provide additional support

More than 1,500 schools have been called this week by the Ministry of Education to provide additional support for end of year payroll reports.

Group Manager, Rebecca Elvy, says so far 83 per cent of schools have sent their reports in, and the Ministry is continuing its calls and intensive support to help other schools complete their reports.
.
“This response rate is a real credit to the professionalism and dedication of payroll staff and principals, and I want to thank them for all their hard work over recent weeks.

“Calls to schools that have not yet sent in their reports are continuing and this is proving a very effective way of providing direct, targeted assistance, and to escalate issues and resolutions as needed.

“The Ministry is committed to ensuring the end of year payroll process goes smoothly for all schools and staff.

Ms Elvy also reminds schools they have one more week to apply for reimbursement for attendance at the Novopay roadshows.

“We want to make sure schools are properly reimbursed for this, just as we will reimburse any additional audit costs directly related to Novopay.

“Any school that hasn’t applied for reimbursement has until next Friday, 30 November. The forms and information, along with a sample tax invoice, are on the home page of www.novopay.govt.nz”.

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>>
