If you have spare time on a Tuesday morning from 9am to 11am, we would love for you to join our existing group of volunteer parents who come in to help make resources for busy teachers. We would be grateful for any help received. It is also a great way to meet some of the school parents, and keep abreast of what is happening within the school.




This is the second year that Mutukaroa, a partnership programme between school and home, will operate at Papakura Normal School.

The aim of Mutukaroa is to work with parents to help them understand how their child is progressing with their learning over their first three years at school. It is also about supporting parents to help their children in their learning and feeling more comfortable in being able to talk to teachers about learning.

The following website has some valuable

information translated into different languages for

parents, whaanau and caregivers about 

National Standards and what they mean 

for your child/children.


It is also recommended that you read our 2015 ERO Report which gives a comprehensive description of what we are doing well to help your child / children achieve success at Papakura Normal School. 


Parents will find several learning links in the "How Can You Help With Homework" folder under "Parent Information" section that may be helpful in assisting students with Homework.

There are also websites that have been set up by some teachers on their class web page. These websites cater for the needs of students in individual rooms.


The QUICK LINK buttons for Reporting an Absence, Change of Address Details, and Bullying can be found on the Contact Us page.
