Raneem is the 2016 head student at Papatoetoe High School and a spoken word poet. Sit back and enjoy his spoken word ode to eh suburbs of south Auckland ... Represent!

Raneem Caco is a spoken word poet and the current head student of Papatoetoe High School. He was born in Libya to Iraqi parents but has lived most of his life in Papatoetoe. He is equally as proud of his South Auckland and Iraqi heritage. Raneem believes that New Zealand is as close as it gets to perfection and the people in it are a reflection of its greatness. It is this belief that makes him passionate about using his natural ability to shape spoken words, and sacrificing his own time, to help those who need it and share what New Zealand has taught and blessed him with.
