Kakano represents the seed that has potential to grow. We are the foundation for each seed, providing a sense of belonging for our tamariki. When a seed is nurtured with the essential elements and given the right foundation, it will begin to grow.
Pakiaka represents the roots that grow within a nurtured and carefully prepared foundation. Our tamariki will begin to spread and search beyond the seed. The roots will take hold within the foundation that has been laid for, and with, them.
