Act of Kindness from Glen Taylor School

Today, room 7 received goodies from the amazing Glen Taylor school. A group of students from their class came to room 7 explaining to us their project on giving back to their local community. The goodies we received were home made cookies, brownies and some lollies. As an act of kindness, we decided to give them a thank you letter as well as a plant that we planted during our trip to the botanical gardens. Room 7 were very grateful for their act of kindness and we appreciate the hard work they put into making the goodies specifically for us. Thank You!

Do teachers really need to strike?

For the past week, room 7 have been working on argument writing. Our topic was 'Do teachers really need to strike'. Our WALT was to express our thoughts to a specific audience. Here is my writing below!

Do teachers really need to strike?

Yes! Teachers do need to go on strike. It is a serious matter that the government should deal with. What is a school without teachers? What will students do? Here are some reasons why our teachers have every right to go on strike!

School resources are one of the many things which students need to be able to learn. Teachers need to ensure that their school is well equipped with acceptable resources. For example, special needs assistants for students who need it, from the ministry of education. Many students enter a classroom sad, hungry or not properly clothed. With proper resources, teachers can be able to provide those with food, clothing or even school stationery if needed. These will help students with all sorts of activities that can be done at school.

Many teachers are sick and tired of the amount of work they receive from their school and from the government. I hadn’t noticed this before, but, not only do teachers teach writing, reading and maths everyday, they have additional jobs which include making sure that every student is happy and that there are no problems such as cyber bullying or bullying. Students may not know it, but our teachers are full of stress that can be brought up upon others. Teachers need to have a say in how much work they receive so that our students are well taught. Well and better teachers mean a better outcome in our students learning.

Many schools around NZ have more than 30 students who attend their class room, which is way more than the average amount. Imagine this, 1 teacher 35 students. That's a lot right? Every student in a classroom deserves time with their teacher. But, as the the amount of students increase, that means the less time teachers have with their students. The most important key to a positive outcome in learning, is to have an opportunity to build a  positive relationship with your class teacher.

Teachers have every right to go on strike. With the amount of work they receive and the problems that they aren’t  even supposed to deal with, gives them every right to go on strike. Strike is the only way to grab the government's attention so that they can listen to the problems that have been brewing for a while now. The list of demands they’re asking for may sound a little crazy, but they’re stating the truth, and the truth needs to be spread.

The strike has nothing to with the pay (Although an increase in money would be okay) It’s about the students.
