Cycle Ambassadors

Hi - we are the Cycle Ambassadors. Janet from Auckland Transport came to May Road School. She taught the team how to use the bikes correctly and how to use them safely. We will be able to teach others to use the bikes in a proper way. We think bikes support a healthy and sustainable world. Every class has a turn each week. It is cool to have our own track in our school. 

The Cycle Ambassador Bike Team are in the process of being trained. They are Benhur, Samuel, Noara, Ambarish, Georgia, Peyton. Tīma Rā: Abraham, Unaloto, Pavaran, Timothy. 


Our Enviro team has been really busy planting and caring for our gardens. We are proud to have a thriving vegetable garden which is used to promote healthy eating habits throughout the school. Our amazing volunteer Sarah shares her knowledge of what to plant and how to plant. Miss Tavake and Ms Noakes work with the team on Mondays at lunchtime - weather permitting. If you would like to help out in our gardens please come and see us.

Create awareness of learners' ability to make a difference in our world

Inquire into changes in our local environments and beyond

Explore the history of our place and our role as kaitiaki. Work with Kainga Ora and local stakeholders. All involved at May Road School to have a depth of understanding of the importance of this role. 

Foster practices that enhance hauora

 Create a safe, secure and sustainable environment

Share and champion sustainable environmental practices E.g. composting and recycling. Kaitiaki work for Te Auaunga.

Strengthen relationships with whānau

Students and whānau involved in Enviro and Health initiatives.

Mana Whenua 

We have a rōpū of children who are inquiring into the local history of our maunga - Pukewīwī. They have had the benefit of working with Hans Dieter-Bader who is an archaeologist and expert in the history of how people lived and utilised the natural resources of Tāmaki Makau-rau. The rōpū share their learning about the history of Pukewīwī and mana whenua, with others in the school.  

Celebrate cultural diversity and the special place of Māori

Understand the local history and environment - past, present, future

Kapa Haka 

We have a wonderful group of children who meet every Thursday with Miss Koonwaiyou and Ms Noakes. 

All children are welcome to join, from Year 2. We are always looking for whānau to tautoko our weekly practices - just let us know.
