COVID-19: Changes to Council services
Our office will be closed and the way we’re able to deliver our services to teachers will temporarily change – we thank you for your kindness and patience as we learn to work in this new way. Please visit this special COVID-19 Updates webpage to learn how Council servics are impacted by the lockdown.
Please email rather than call!
Due to COVID19 restrictions our office is now closed and our kaimahi are working remotely. Therefore, we ask that you please email any queries you might have to our contact centre staff at firstname.lastname@example.org, rather than calling. Thank you!
