Attendance Services

Attendance Services

Your local community provides crucial support for your whānau, but it’s essential to make connections. If your child is reluctant to attend school, it’s crucial to understand the underlying reasons and address their concerns seriously. Have a chat with the school or consult your GP for health-related concerns.

Southern REAP’s Attendance Service supports whānau and can refer to various agencies to ensure your child’s happiness and success at school. Students may let the pressures of school affect their life. It is essential to reach out to the school or the Attendance Service for assistance.
