Free Truancy Resources For Waitakere Schools

Free Truancy Resources For Waitakere Schools

The CEPNZ announces today that it will supply every school in the Waitakere District with free access to its Truancy Resource Pack in an effort to reduce non-attendance.

The CEPNZ (Character Education Programme of New Zealand) had been developing resources to assist schools to combat truancy since November 2003 and made the privately developed "Truancy Resource Pack" available to schools in January 2004. By late March this year, this Pack was enhanced with the launch of the CEPNZs online Truancy Database to its members. Now, over 165 schools (including 3 in Waitakere) and associated Truancy Officers throughout NZ have access to these resources.

As the CEPNZ is a private organisation, every school wishing to use our resources to date has had to purchase our Pack through their Operations Grants. "We wish to show our support for our local community and make a stand against the constant problem of truancy by providing all schools in Waitakere with access to these resources for free" says Stuart and Elizabeth Macmillan, Co-Managers of the CEPNZ.

Schools will be able to access the online version of this Pack which includes resources for schools to assist them in areas of attendance, full guidelines and support, posters for the schools and retailers, access to the CEPNZ's online truancy reporting system and the online truancy database.

These resources will be accessed on the Internet through the CEPNZ's website ( and all schools wishing to gain free access are asked to contact the CEPNZ for their access codes by email (to with their full details or write to CEPNZ, PO Box 20-616, Glen Eden.
