We empower educators to achieve equitable, world class outcomes for students in an evolving global environment.
Hutia te rito o te harakeke, kei whea te kōmako e kō?
Kī mai ki ahau; he aha te mea nui o te Ao?
Māku e kī atu, he tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata
If the heart of harakeke was removed, where will the bellbird sing?
If I was asked, what was the most important thing in the world;
I would be compelled to reply, It is people, it is people, it is people!
Our Tui Tuia | Learning Circle logo celebrates the harakeke, which symbolises the family and the cycle of life. The rito is the child. It is protected by the awhi rito (parents). The outside leaves represent the tūpuna (grandparents and ancestors). The tui is a symbol of the people and the act of guardianship, and the flower represents the seed of knowledge.
