North Waikato Attendance Service
Te Ratonga Haerereatanga o Te Tai Tokerau o Waikato
Adrian Clarke is our Northern Waikato Attendance Advisor. His role will be returning students in the school back to full time education by removing the barriers that may stop them from doing that, such as health, finance, etc.
"If I can't remove those barriers then I can refer people to professionals that can help," Adrian said. "I want to enjoy life while I can and get back into the community and help young ones where I can."
Prior to this job Adrian worked at the Solomon Group for 12 years, doing Attendance Service and majority of youth work such as expo's, goal setting and path finding.
Before that he worked for two years at Datacom, a non enrolled truancy service, and before that he worked six years at Papakura District Truancy.
A Pokeno/Tuakau local, Adrian went to Pokeno School and Pukekohe High School and is looking foward to working with his own community and people again. Adrian has connections to majority of the Taunui maraes in the area.
