History of our whakatauākī
This whakatauākī was written by the tumuaki and leaders of Māori from our kura who gathered at our local marae, Te Herenga Waka o Orewa Marae for a hui on August 11, 2022.
One of the goals of the hui was to brainstorm ideas for a whakatauākī/proverb for our kura. The leaders thought of metaphors that helped to tell a story of our place, our learners and their learning.
After the brainstorm, Kereama took the ideas and wrote them into a whakatauākī for us that captured the essence of what we were trying to say.
