Room 25 has been doing work based around the Maori culture and Matariki, including Poupeu writing and writing about the Battle of Gate Pa. Being the Tuakana of Matakana Pod, they have had to be role models for the younger children in Rooms 23 and 24, thereby practising responsibility and leadership, along with the mori values. Kia kaha! Room 25 have also been working on the Zones of Regulation as a way to label and manage their emotions.
