Fresh protests as Novopay impacts teacher morale

Related

Board members, teachers and students from Christchurch's Thorrington Primary School joined forces this morning to publicly voice their frustrations over Novopay.

The protest, outside the school was organised by the school's Board of Trustees which is concerned over teacher morale.

Thorrington Principal, Christine Harris, says Novopay's problems are beginning to eat away at the school's culture.

"For a long time I think people thought that it wasn't affecting a lot of the schools but as you can see, we have 10 teachers who have not been paid since the beginning of the year."

Ms Harris says the school's financially helping the teachers but can't do this forever.
