Annoyance with the Government's constantly changing approach to dealing with Covid-19 in schools.  

New rules will mean students will only be considered close contacts if they kiss, cough, share a vape or sing with an infected student.  

Teachers are calling for more rapid antigen tests, as teachers and sometimes whole year groups are sent home.  

Auckland Secondary Principals Association President Steve Hargreaves told Mike Hosking schools haven't been able to catch up for lost time. 

“I’ve been looking at the strategic plan for the last couple of years and we’ve barely been able to touch it because we spend all time learning the rules for how to manage Covid.”
