Corinne Hansell, principal of Tamaki Primary School, discusses the role of students in the home-school partnership. She believes the students are who it’s all for, and does her utmost to ensure that the organisation of the school’s home-school partnership is familiar and supportive to them.


When we talk about what the role what the students have in home-school partnership, we are always talking to them about what sorts of things go on at home, after the meetings and before the meetings, and what did mum say and is mum coming and is dad coming too? So we give it a lot of verbal promotion and feedback afterwards, so we get to know what their thoughts are about it as well and whether it felt good for them or whether it was a nerve wracking experience.
