He Kura Tūwhera Open Door Policy 
Our kura has an Open Door Policy, which means that parents are welcome to come into our kura and visit at anytime. Please feel free to come into the staff room at anytime for a cup of tea.

If you are interested in helping on a regular basis, please talk to your child's kaiako.  There are lots of ways that parents can help and there are a few places in the kura that English is allowed to be spoken, so kaua e whakamā, don't be shy, haere mai.
