Trust Vision – Pā tū tahi

“To honour our identity and heritage to ensure our hapū flourish in an ever-changing future”

Pā tahi is taken from our whakatauki “Oruru karanga pā tahi (tahataha), calling from one fortress to the other. This was significant in the times of raiding war parties and communications between the many pā sites within the Oruru Valley.

The term “tū” is taken from the whakatauki “Mauri tū, mauri ora”.  This is based on ensuring the betterment of our people in all facets of education, tikanga, hauora, sustainability, marae, spirituality and economics.
