School Attendance Service

Te Taiwhenua o Heretaunga is providing School Attendance services for 171 schools

Te Taiwhenua o Heretaunga has a three-year contract with the Ministry of Education to provide School Attendance services for 171 schools from Tutira in Hawke's Bay to Featherston in Wairarapa.

The School Attendance service does more than simply return a truanting child to school. It gets to the root of why a child is choosing not to go to school, then works with whānau to address those issues.

This empowers whānau to take control of their lives,  set goals for their future, and ensure that tamariki and ranagatahi receive an education as the foundation for their own lives.

Te Taiwhenua o Heretaunga has eight staff working on this services, with two in Hastings, two in Napier, one in Dannevirke and three in Wairarapa.
