Kia Ora Papatoetoe South School whānau,

Anne Henderson & Karen Mapp once quoted, “When schools, families and community groups work together to support learning, children tend to do better in school, stay in school longer, and like school more.”

At Papatoetoe South School, we have seen positive shifts in student academic achievement, and when parents and school are working together the success is accelerated.

This term we are running some Talanoa events, where we can work together, to help raise student achievement. These are workshops where parents can share what is working at home (home learning) as well as learn from other parents and teachers.

“At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child’s success is the positive involvement of parents”– Jane D Hull. We are excited to be working with you, learning from you and continuing to support your child/children’s learning journey.

He waka eke noa – we are all in this together.
