Attendance Service

He Roopu Wahine Matariki

CKC REAP looks after the local Attendance Service contract.

Attending school on a regular basis is hugely important. Every day counts towards a child’s learning and pays huge dividends for their future. Regular attendance is needed for children to continue learning and improving their basic reading, writing and other skills they need.

REAP has staff members who work to help students and families where attendance is a concern, Darlene Houpapa can help. 

He Roopu Wahine Matariki is a programme for young women at CKC REAP.

The focus of the programme  is:

· Citizenship

· Friendships

· Relationships

· Support (of community, self, and others)

· Tuakana/ Teina

· Personal Self-development.


For more information on the programme please call REAP and ask to talk to Jenny Gawith.



A Kaiāwhina is a helper, assistant or counsel to someone, a group or organisation.

At CKC REAP we support the development and understanding of the Maori Language, culture, knowledge and values within three Early Childhood Education Centres.

Currently, we have three casual kaiāwhina who are placed at Central Kids Kindergarten Paraone Street, Rata Street Preschool and Central Kids Early Learning Centre.

The focus is to be actively involved with the sharing of Maori concepts and values in  Te Ao Maori and continual communication of Te Reo Maori to the staff, grandparents, parents and children within each centre.

Heartland Services


There are many ways to access government and community services. But sometimes you just want to talk to someone, face to face, in your own community. That’s exactly what Heartlands offers. 

Most of our Heartland Service centres are in rural communities that don’t have easy access to government services. We aim to provide a level of personal service that is generally only available in urban centres.

Our Heartland Services Co-Ordinators can provide the link between our provincial rural community and a range of services
