What does the issue of sick leave mean for you as a teacher, and the tamariki you teach?
The minimum ten days when we are exposed to so much illness is unacceptable, especially when compared to colleagues in other education sectors.
What will it take to fix sick leave for kindergarten teachers?
Recognising that we need more than the minimum [number of sick days] based on our exposure and allowing us to have the same conditions with disregarded sick leave as other sectors.
When we fix sick leave, what impact will that change have on you as a teacher, and the tamariki you teach?
Allow us to recover without guilt of either being at work unwell or being at home unpaid. Therefore more present and healthy teachers for our tamariki.
