Social Worker in Schools for Turangi

I hope everyone has had a well and deserved holiday. I am Hineao Bishara, the Social Worker in School (SWIS) for Turangi. I work for Family Works Northern within Tongariro School, Te Kura O Hirangi, and Kuratau School.

I am here to help and support children and their whanau in a variety of ways. We all have times when things don’t go as we hoped or want and it’s OK to ask for help! If you or your child have any concerns about behaviour such as bullying or anger management, self-confidence, social skills, family relationships, family violence, grief and loss, or something else please feel free to come and have a chat.

I welcome referrals and anyone can refer, the SWIS service is free, confidential and voluntary. So I will need parental consent to work alongside of your child. My office is situated at Tongariro School (The Little House on the Prairie), behind and out to the left of the tech/block building. I will be at Tongariro School every Monday, Tuesday and Friday, however this may change depending on work commitments and needs within schools.
