The aspirational goal for our kāhui ako is to grow young people who, through being educated in our community and to use the words of NZ poet Allen Curnow: “learn the trick of standing upright here.”
Our way of operating, first and foremost, collaborative and strengthened by our professional respect for one another and underpinned by our united and passionate commitment to the young people entrusted to us.
