RSS - Room 4 News

Kia Ora Whanau!

My name is Luhgee Lim, I am an overseas trained SPED teacher in the Philippines and earned a New Zealand full teaching registration. I am part of RSS teaching force for 4 years. I am teaching in Room 4 alongside with my dynamic support staff Liani and Angela. We also have therapists on-board Mandana SLT, Pearl OT, Michelle O&M and Karen Physiotherapist.

Our class is consist of three wonderful tamariki- Tatiana Sorenson, Timothy Smith and Zary Cobb.

This year, we will start learning about Kiwiana a series of Headway Sensory Programs under SPEC module. This will be a great learning to everyone about utilizing our natural resources (flax, paua shells, and native woods), explore New Zealand icons and understanding Maori culture. Also, as part of this years’ school theme, Room 4 students and staff will put an emphasis in exercising Tikanga Maori as an integral part of our daily program.
