Teachers can’t ‘work to rule’
THERE CAN BE NO work-to-rule in teaching, says former school principal-turned-priest Reverend Keith Griffith.
He said any such action was disgusting and anyone who wanted to participate in it should not be in schools.
Griffith was addressing pupils, teachers and specially invited guests on Tuesday during the 20th anniversary service and awards ceremony of Ignatius Byer Primary School at St Clement’s Anglican Church, where he’s the priest in charge.
“When I heard that it was said by a leader of a union that they are on a work-to-rule, I said there is no work-to-rule in teaching,” said the former principal of St James Secondary, now the Frederick Smith Secondary School.
“You work with principle; you work beyond the call of duty because we are called to care for children. If there is an emergency at 3 o’clock, you can’t say you are working to rule. . .” (RL)
