2-4 days a week
Working hours are school hours 9-3:30
It is expected a teacher will be in attendance at their school from 8am to 4pm daily and sometimes later than this for staff meetings or parent/teacher nights. There are no recess or lunch breaks free of work duties for teachers. They are either on playground duty or attending to students or cleaning up from the last lesson or preparing for the next lesson. The after school hours worked to keep up with preparation and assessment are considerable and vary between 2 to 4 hours per day depending on the time of year.
