Parenting Tips


Thanks to the PTA and with sponsorship from KAS (Kids After School), Pukekohe Hill was able to host a workshop with parenting guru Jenny Hale. Jenny kindly gave permission for the slide show to be shared on the School Web-Site, for parents to see what was discussed, and for those who were there to refer back to.
