Together We Excel


Strong educational outcomes for the learner, drives our leadership practice, at all levels. We have grown an awareness of how schools and traditional education pathways, have not worked for all Māori, so our vision for the future is especially focused on ensuring greater success for Māori as learners and as Māori. 

By growing leadership knowledge, skills and qualities that are at the heart of success for all, we can extend and empower every learner who is connected to our learning community. 

We work to provide a way forward for all stakeholders. We honour Aotearoa, New Zealand as a bicultural nation and lead the way in culturally sustaining teaching and learning and equitable outcomes. We nurture the whole child, providing opportunities for them to grow their cultural, social, and emotional identity. 

We can all be both learner and teacher. We can lead from the front or the back. We can be the change we want to see...

Kaua e rangiruatia te hāpai o te hoe; e kore tō tātou waka e ū ki uta

‘Do not lift the paddle out of unison or our canoe will never reach the shore.' 

Working together to succeed in any joint project.
Kia tupu ai enei kakano, hei rakau nui        May these tender seedlings grow into mighty trees
