The Vision

To ensure the educational achievement of Ngāti Toa Whānui, through providing access to information and resources that enable a sustainable future for generations.

The Mission

Puna Mātauranga is centered on the principles of Whānaungatanga, Manaakitanga and Rangatiratanga. We acknowledge the wealth of expertise within Whānau, and aim to work together through a strength based approach to learning.

We aim to support learner specific needs through the development of educational plans and effective collaboration between Whānau, iwi and schools.
