Our Year 5-8 learners all work as values leaders fulfilling important roles in the school. Here is a photo of each group and a description of what they do:

AMBASSADORS

This group of learners must not only model our vision and values and demonstrate our kowhai rules at all times, but they must be able to confidently discuss them with adult audiences. They help to facilitate tours of our school for the many educators and Boards of Trustees who request a visit to see our beautiful school and look at the awesome teaching and learning programmes happening inside and outside of our learning studios.

Hi there Sylvia and Ben,

 

Thank you so much for the time that you spent with us yesterday.  We all gained so much from what you had to share and it certainly sent us away enthused.  Your school is lovely and the children and teachers were all so well engaged and welcoming. It was very special to have the school ambassadors to show us through the campus.  My group particularly enjoyed Luke’s hospitality!

We really appreciated your time, please pass on our thanks to your staff and students.

If you are ever visiting Auckland, we would love you to visit us at Royal Oak Primary School.

 

Thanks

PALS

This group of learners is responsible for hosting sports games for all year groups and they give out the sports equipment that is stored in Te Ara Maia. P.A.L’s stands for playground activity leaders, there are fourteen learners in this group.  

TRANSITION BUDDIES

The transition buddies help out with the new juniors in Te Kete Kakano, Year 0-1. Part of the transition buddy’s role is to complete a booklet throughout the child’s first week of school. For example a picture of the child in  the gym, their favourite place to play, their  studio and also a picture of them in the library.

DIGI TECH LEADERS

This Group is the digi tech group. They are responsible for all the tech in the school. At the end of the day they go around the school and collect all the chromebooks and ipads and have different days for doing this. Whenever there's a new app they have to learn about it. They are there to help others.

When it's their day they go to the library and issue books out for kids and return them once they finish reading them. They also tidy the library after morning tea and lunch time.
