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.

Service Week is THIS WEEK!

This week is Service Week at RI. The Social Changency is celebrating because every class has commited to service initiatives throughout the week.
See the image below to see some highlights of the class service projects!
Also, please watch our video!

Here are some examples!

Room 27

Room 25
An original initiative to polish students' school shoes :)

Room 24
in addition to forming cleaning crews to help, students from Room 24 baked special treats to share with the teachers and made special cards for their families.

Room 20

Room 17
The kids went home and offered to do extra work around the house for the week.  In return they were happy to be able to give a family member the gift of service and if the family member wanted to make a small contribution they could. With this money we will be purchasing this weekend gifts for the under 2's an sending them to Auckland City Mission.

Here's Jack and Aleyah cleaning and washing cars and Sophie keeping our beaches clean.

A special mention goes out to Linxi from Room 17 who donated a substantial amount of her own hair to donate to the Cancer Society. :)

She is a loyal member of our group we are extra proud of her.

Room 14

They offered a selection of beverages and treats to refresh the teachers on a hot summery day.
