We asked Mokoia Intermediate pupils why they liked going to the school.

It's fun because there are lots of sports. I like rugby, league and discus. I'm in the rumaki class. We learn in Māori and you get to learn your whakapapa and history.

I like the environment and that we're all a big whānau. Everyone knows everyone and gets along. The teachers all care about you.

I like my teacher because her classroom is colourful and she gets you outside and has the same amount of passion for outside and inside learning.

You get to do what you want to do because it's a small school. I like the teachers. They push you and they get to know you.

I like the sports like hockey and water polo. I like that all there are different cultures in the classrooms.
