Thomas Rangihuna - Social Worker in Schools
My name is Thomas Rangihuna. I am the Social Worker in Schools (SWiS). The schools I will be involved with are Te Kura Kaupapa Maori o Nga Uri a Maui, Riverdale and Patutahi School.
I have three main roles:
This service is for all tamariki and whanau in school communities
- To work one on one with tamariki/children and their whanau/families
- To provide group programmes which help tamariki/children and their whanau/families to succeed
- To help whanau/families to access community support and community networks
Whether you need help with school, at home or with things like health services, I will work in partnership with you and your school to achieve positive outcomes.
I look forward to working with you all.
