Hi everyone,

My name is Mandy O’Reilly and I am the Hauora teacher of Room Kererū, which is made up of Year 5 and 6 students. Students of Kererū will meet in our Hauora class in the mornings before they move to their core learning class, and then come back after lunch.

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 Team Te Pihinga, students strive to gain the knowledge, skills and attitudes to be lifelong learners in a local, national and global world. This is achieved through student led learning and student agency. 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. Students will share their learning with whanau through Seesaw. 

We all follow the AROHA values and expectations so students can take risks in a safe and supportive learning environment. Students in Kererū are role models and encouraged to develop their leadership skills.
