Kia ora koutou.

Room 5 has 7 great students this year – Ngawari M, Hekenuku S, Stacey H, Novel S, Waimarie C, Sifa N, and Kalais R. ranging in age from 14 to 20.

Our staffing team, led by Ron, includes Angela, Sharee and Lester, supported by the school Therapy team for Speech and Language, Orientation and Mobility, Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy.

Room 5 follows a steady routine of activities focused on meeting the goals set in student Individual Education Plans in language, math, P.E. , life skills and other curriculum areas. Routine ensures that we all know what is happening and this helps us stay on task.

We are lucky to have access to a school van and this enables us to explore our community and what it has to offer, like the Library, swimming pools, lakes and forest. We enjoy getting out and about as much as our Covid restrictions have allowed. In term 1 we explored under the topic of “Our Local Area” or “Rohe”. In term 2 we will be working on another theme “Our World” or “to tatou ao”.
