Parent Helpers
At Tangowahine School we have an ‘open door’ policy. This means parents are welcome to become a ‘parent helper’. Parents, grandparents and caregivers are welcome to come and help out in class within the school programmes. We also go on regular class trips and on these occasions require extra parental support and transport. Check with the classroom teacher to find out how you can be involved.

School grounds and playground
We encourage all our community to come and use the school grounds, as long as they respect the privilege and keep it in good condition. If you see any damage or suspicious behaviour, please let the office know as soon as possible.

Sickness, Accidents or Emergencies
If your child becomes ill or has an accident at school, you may be notified and asked to come and pick them up. In an emergency the appropriate procedures will be followed and you will be notified as soon as possible.

It is important that you keep the school informed of any changes to your contact details including new cell phone numbers, by clicking the button below to complete your changes.

Sun Smart
Our school promotes sun safety. During Term 1 & 4, all students must wear a school hat when outside (school hats are now available to purchase from school).  If they do not wear a hat the student must remain under the covered areas during breaks. Sunscreen is provided during these terms.

Telephone and Messages
Whilst we are happy to pass on important messages from parents to students, we cannot guarantee that these messages will get to your child if the message is after 2.25pm.  Students are able to use the school phone at the office for special reasons of safety or welfare.

Students are not permitted to carry or use cell phones while at school.
Cell phones are to be handed in at the school office or to the teacher for safe keeping until the end of the day.

Water Only School
In 2017 the Board of Trustees updated our healthy lifestyle focus and implemented a Water Only Policy for the school. If you would like more information please contact the school.
