Improvements in Ministry of Education’s final 2012 pay-cycle

Improvements in Ministry of Education’s final pay-cycle for 2012

More than 73,000 school staff received their final pay for 2012 today.

This pay-run was smaller than last week’s as it did not include staff who work term-time only.

Chief Information Officer, Leanne Gibson, says she is pleased this pay run went more smoothly than last week’s.

“The Ministry and Talent2 have been working hard to make improvements, and I also want to thank schools and payroll administrators for all the additional effort they’ve put in over recent weeks.

“We’re aware that approximately 300 school staff due to receive their holiday pay today have not yet received it, and we can assure them the money will be in their accounts before Christmas.

“We also appreciate the concern from schools about some overpayments to staff and will work with them on this issue.”

If anyone is not paid or is significantly underpaid the Ministry has measures in place to pay them directly.

This can be done by calling 0800 663 772 or emailing resourcing@minedu.govt.nz with ‘manual payment’ in the subject line.

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>>
