Schools are again dealing with staffing issues as Covid-19 cases increase.

Auckland's Carmel College has gone back to online learning until the end of the week, citing staffing issues.

Post Primary Teachers Association President Melanie Webber told Heather du Plessis-Allan anecdotally they're hearing a huge number of schools are having to modify timetables.

“It’s sort of a bit all or nothing in teaching. It’s not like you can go: ‘I’m going to take things a bit easier, I’m going to go in to work a bit later’ – that’s not how it works with teaching. People are back full in.”
