You will be aware through the media that many of the teaching unions, as well as other public service unions, will be taking industrial action on Wednesday 30 November 2011. There are strikes planned by teachers, non-teachers and public transport workers against proposed changes to pension schemes.
Bloomfield Collegiate School will remain open but because there may be a reduced number of staff in School it will not be possible to provide adequate supervision of pupils. For this reason parents/guardians are asked not to send their daughters/wards to School on Wednesday 30 November 2011. School will operate as normal on Thursday 1 December 2011.
I apologise for any inconvenience caused.
