Motion to save Lennox pavilion fails

What will the teachers achieve by striking over the state govt new ‘buy local’ policy? Nothing.

Won’t it support those businesses that surround those schools? Yes.

All the strike has done is to disrupt school learning and put parents in a position of further hardship by having to pay for extra care.

Some teachers can’t even manage the classroom let alone a budget into the millions. So allow the government to continue the training of those in the school that will manage the funding and get on with providing the education to our kids they are paid for. And stop having little hissy fits over whether buying takes place through the government system or supports local business.

  1. David, you clearly have no idea what the teacher’s action is about. Please go and find out, then you may want to send in a retraction. Maybe an apology as well.

  2. That wasn’t the only or main reason David Williams. A lot of parents can’t manage their 1 or 2 kids at home, if you havn’t already try giving some time to your local school as I have and see what teachers have to contend with all day.
