Strategic Plan 2021-2023

“IEhara taku toa I te toa takirahi, engari kē he toa takitini”
My success should not be bestowed onto me alone, it was not individual success but the success of a collective
Just as it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a community to enable the success of an individual
