More support for the schools yet to complete end of year pay


Media release

More support available for the schools yet to complete end of year pay process

Expert special advisors are still available to the 400 schools yet to complete the end of year pay process.

The end of year information impacts a group of about ten thousand teachers who are fixed term or long-term relievers, most support staff, and any staff going to a new school next year.

These staff will receive their pay on December 12.

Group Manager Rebecca Elvy says the Ministry of Education will continue calling schools this week to offer additional support to complete the process.

“We have called more than 1500 schools and 85 per cent of schools have successfully completed the process.

“If any payroll administrator needs additional support we are here to help either on the phone or through a visit by one of our special advisors.”

Ms Elvy reiterates the Ministry’s commitment to a smooth end of year payroll process.

“If any employee is underpaid or not paid, the school can make an advance and the Ministry will reimburse it, or the Ministry can make the advance directly to the staff member.”

To arrange a direct advance from the Ministry during the Christmas break the affected staff member can email resourcing@minedu.govt.nz with the subject line: ‘Advance’ or call 04 463 8383.

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
