Learning Hub names  - "Ngā Puna Ako"

Frankley School has Maori names for our learning hubs.  Our school vision is "Positive difference, Creative learner, Effective communicator".  The Kahikatea tree represents the growth of learning that our children develop while they are here with us.  This also leads into linking the names to a growing analogy.   

  • We plant "The Seed".  "The Plume" appears.  The "Seedling" continues to grow.  The roots system "join together".  The "Kahikatea" trees stand strong.  Stand confident, stand resolute yay!
  • Ka whakatō "Te Kakano".  Ka puta "Te Puawai".  Ka tipu "Te Pihinga".  Ka "Tuhono" nga pakiaka.  Ka tu kaha nga "Kahikatea".  E tu maia, e tu manawanui eee!
