Te Awamutu Primary School - Kia Kaha - Be Strong




The School shares with the parents the responsibility of child safety to and from school.  To assist in this important role, we need to be informed when your child is absent.


This can be done by telephoning the school office 871 5378 and leaving a message or texting 021 276 0505 with your child's name, room number and reason for absence.  We will then advise your child’s class teacher and make a note on the school roll.

Please ensure that the school is notified of ANY absences and the reason even if it is for family reasons. Failure to do so will result in a follow up telephone call or text and any children who are absent without an explanation will be marked as truant, this is a requirement of the Ministry of Education- no exceptions.
