Room 8

Nau mai, piki mai, haere mai


We are the Room 8 whānau at Pukenui School. There are a mixture of both year 3 and 4 tamariki in our whānau which is wonderful as this allows our tuakana to develop leadership skills through the supporting of our teina. We enjoy having a calm environment in our akomanga. This is supported through the practise of mindfulness and learning of Te Whare Tapa Whā.

We focus on developing our knowledge bases and skill sets as guided by the Key Competencies which our Pukenui SOLE Values reflect. In doing so, we are growing in our ability to be resilient, agile, innovative and self driven critical thinkers. Collective knowledge is developed and shared within whole class, group and pair situations.

This term we have had our Oral Presentations. Everyone in our whānau presented and did a phenomenal job. The theme of our poems was Sustainability which has been our main kaupapa all term. The majority of ako in Room 8 is theme driven. This has been supplemented by the use of a number of online learning platforms including Google Suite.

We are proud of who we are as a whānau and where we come from. We welcome new members to our whānau by sharing our pride with them.

I roto i ngā mihi ki a koutou katoa.
