Kia Ora Koutou, My name is Ria Melling and I am the Coordinator for the Mutukaroa programme here at Stanhope Road School. Mutukaroa is the name of a school and community learning partnership. Mutukaroa is about working with parents and whānau to understand how their children are progressing in their learning over the first three years at school. It is also about supporting parents to help their children in their learning at home. At Stanhope Road School we understand the importance of working together with parents and whānau to support the learning of our tamariki. Through this programme we will provide strategies, resources and have valuable learning conversations. Please click here if you would like to have a look at the Mutukaroa website. This gives you more information about this partnership. I am really looking forward to the year ahead, see you soon! Nga mihi nui.
