What to do if you have a concern

PASTORAL OR ACADEMIC:

Usually, your child's whanau teacher is the first contact for most matters as they see your child regularly.

Depending on the outcome of the discussion, you may wish to contact your child's year group Kaitiaki (for pastoral matters) or subject teacher (for academic matters):
