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 Monday lunchtime meetings with Mr Zemke.

Hi! We're the Social Changency.

Hello and welcome to our blog. We are the Social Changency here at Remuera Intermediate in Auckland New Zealand. We work hard to help make our school a better place for all students. Right now we are working on a week called Race Unity Week. Race Unity Week is all about uniting the races and showing people that it doesn't matter what others look like because we're all human. There are a couple of documents we want to share. These outline the events for the year and the values that go with them.
