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.

Live for Awesome

Dream Big, Achieve More

Cam Calkoen


On Wednesday last week we were lucky enough to have Cam Calkoen visit the year 8s at assembly.

It was incredible, Cam gave a very life changing speech which was AWESOME!(awesome is Cam's favourite word). It was very motivational and Cam told us to dream big, achieve more unless you really don't believe in your dream then you may need to find one you do believe in. 


If you don't know already Cam has Cerebral Palsy and doctors told him he was destined for a wheelchair. Day by day he improved and upgraded to support walkers. No one ever thought he would be able to walk alone with no support but he did it.



Not only that he was one of the worlds top 10 athletes with Cerebral Palsy which is AWESOME!! Over the years Cam has achieved many things like giving speeches all over the world and he is also an Ambassador for Toyota New Zealand.



Cam is a very inspirational person and somebody who we should all admire. 

DON'T FORGET TO
DREAM BIG, ACHIEVE MORE
