More than 90% of schools complete end-of-year process

More than 90 per cent of schools have now completed their end-of-year pay process, with the Ministry of Education continuing to support schools still finalising them.

Group Manager, Rebecca Elvy, says the Ministry and Talent 2 are committed to fully supporting the remaining schools to help them successfully complete the process.

“It’s very encouraging that so many schools have sent their information in, and any payroll administrator still needing additional help will receive it whether that is over the phone or through an expert advisor visiting them.”
.
Ms Elvy says she can assure all school staff that there are measures in place to ensure they receive their Christmas pay.

“We are pleased every pay cycle has improved and expect that to continue, but we are ready to quickly deal with any case where a staff member might not be paid.

“In the first instance, the staff member can contact their payroll administrator and ask for an advance. If this is not possible they should contact the Ministry directly and we will get it sorted as quickly as possible for them.”

Emails can be sent to resourcing@minedu.govt.nz with “Not Paid” or “Underpaid” in the subject line.

Ms Elvy says tomorrow is also the last day for schools to submit their invoices for travel costs and up to two hours of staff costs arising from attending the Novopay training road shows.

More information about how to do this can be found at 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>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. 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>>
