We stand proud beneath the white of the snow capped mountain. Our maunga is Tararua, the mighty range of peaks that stands guard over the northern end of our valley. Sir Edmond Hillary said: “It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.” This is our kaupapa, looking inward to find our strength while helping those around us conquer their own personal mountains.
Everyone has their own mountain to climb and as a collective group we can encourage and support everyone to reach their potential. We may all be climbing the same mountain on different paths, however, we can all still be unified and uplifting.
