Our Mission Statement

Our Mission Statement

We are an active globally-minded group from Remuera Intermediate School in Auckland New Zealand, that are concerned about the important issues of today. We align ourselves with the values program of our school and endeavour to make a difference to our school and our community. We will organise special days throughout the year to build awareness of global issues such as the environment and peace. We will concentrate on service and being of benefit to others. Our time to change the world is at our Thursday lunchtime meetings with Mr Zemke.

Room 3 service week project and new video

Room 3 Service Week Project, video and bake sale

During term 4, Room 3 is focusing on social action instead of just talking about the problems. We did this by doing many different projects to help global issues around the world. In this project the class is split into many different groups of two. 

In these groups, we work together to create a powerpoint or any sort of document to talk about global issues such as poverty, global warming and maybe even refugee camps at Syria
Working On The Video

Our goal for service week is to become global citizens and contribute to the world by helping the cause of these problems. We make sure that our work is completed on time and that it has something to do with the topic we're actually working on. 

During service week, Room 3 will think of many different types of actions to help these global issues for example: fundraisers, donations and even petitions. By doing these many different actions, we hope that we can contribute to global issues and that maybe we can help it even if it is just by a little bit. 

We also featured on the video below:

The week after service week room 3 also held a bake sale to fundraise for global issues around the world!

As you can see a lot of people came to help fundraise and buy some cookies. Everyone had fun and everyone got what they wanted.

With the $444 we raised with the bake sale, we will be donating the money to the following charities: 
World Vision, Auckland City Council, Unicef, Greenpeace, Water care and many more.

These are letters we wrote to different organisations with cheques attached from the fundraising.
