Nau mai, haere mai ki tēnei pae tukutuku o  Te Kura o Te Kauaeranga!

 E rua ngā wahanga  - Two Strands in One Kura

Introducing our new mural by Matua Rick Fisher

Our 4 manu represent the hapū our kura is split into for all of our whole school activities and challenges. All manu are on the lookout and hunt for kai representing a hunger for education and learning. The brown koru represents Tānemahuta and the 3 baskets of knowledge. The blue koru represents our connection to Tikapa and its significance to our place. The white lines throughout represent the waves in learning and life. The green koru represents our connection to our maunga and the white lines throughout depict our awa that surround us. The Unaunahi designs near the top and bottom represent the significance of Ngāti Maru; our Mana Whenua. The harakeke speaks to the natural resources at the heart of learning and the kowhai tree speaks of the hauora of our ngahere.

Ngā mihi mahana ki a Matua Rick.
