  • Part 3 Hours of Work
    • 3.1.1 It is acknowledged that principals are often required to undertake duties outside of the hours that the school is open for instruction. Such duties include:

        • preparation, evaluation and assessment work generated by classes/sessions and the students within them, or by other requirements such as the need to report on the progress of individual students;
        • counselling of students;
        • management and administrative responsibilities;
        • attending courses and meetings;
        • professional development.

      This factor has been taken into consideration in determining the hours of work and leave entitlements of these principals.

      3.1.2 Principals shall work such hours as may be reasonably required to enable them to properly fulfil their responsibilities whether or not such hours may exceed 40 hours per week.
