About R17

Room 17 at Owairaka Primary School, Mt Albert, Auckland, New Zealand are a ‘Mau e mahi-You can do it’ class. We are a truly reflective cross section of our society. Our families come from Europe, Asia, Africa, The Pacific, and Aotearoa, New Zealand. Despite us having very different backgrounds, cultures, and religions we endeavour to accept and respect each other, and get on well together; being examples of “You Can Do It Students”. We will move forward together and build a better, global community.

Maku e mahi, mau e mahi, ka tatou katoa i whiwhi i te matauranga teitei.

Our goal for term 3 is to be a good listener!

Because good listening = GOOD MANNERS.

Once we can listen to each other we will achieve almost anything.

In term 3, we’ve had our ups & down. We’ve been apart of the first school production in the last 10years – Nizagim. Just recently, we have been given the nod for gaining ‘GREEN GOLD’.
With all the stress, practices and disruptions, students in our class have still made positive progress in reading and maths.
Well Done Room 17. I am so proud of you all.

Have a safe holiday and I will let you know what I’ve been up to these holidays.
