My name is Mandy O’Reilly and I am the teacher of Room Ruru, which is made up of 

Year 6, 7 & 8 students. I am excited about building positive relationships with the children in my class and their families, and working with them to achieve their full potential.


In Ruru class, students strive to gain the knowledge, skills and attitudes to be lifelong learners in a local, national and global world. Therefore, they take responsibility for their own learning outcomes and progress, all the while being scaffolded by the teacher. We are a digital based classroom. Students use a variety of tools to locate, create and share their learning and successes.


We all follow the AROHA values and expectations so students can take risks in a safe and supportive learning environment.


Being seniors in our school, students are encouraged to be role models and take on leadership roles. These include: Whanau House Leaders, PB4L leaders, and help with school duties such as Breakfast in Schools, organising school events and Fruit Monitors.
