Ko Te Pūkenga mātou | This is Te Pūkenga

Ko te pū o te harakeke te hiringa o tō mātou tuakiri. Arā, ko tōna wāhanga kaha ko te huinga pū o ngā aho.

Ahakoa he miro takitahi tātou katoa, kia pūpūtia ka kaha kē atu.

Ki konei, ka tuaringia e mātou he tirohanga hei whakawhiti mātauranga, pūkenga hoki.

Kotahi tonu te kaupapa o te whakaako me te ako, hei tuitui i te onamata ki te anamata tipu ora.

Nāu te rourou, nāku te rourou.

Ko pūtake mai tō mātou kaha i tēnei wāhi – ā, ka whakamahia ki te tautoko ki te hāpai ake tētahi i tētahi.

Koinei te pūtake e tipu ake ai, e puāwai hoki ai tātou katoa.

Ko Te Pūkenga tēnei.

Te Pūkenga word mark

Tō Mātou Tirohanga Roa | Our vision

Whakairohia e toki, tāraia te anamata | Learning with purpose, creating our futures.

The most well used and highly prized tool of the pre-European Māori world was the toki or the adze. This implement was used to fashion waka, build houses, fell trees and even create other tools. So prized was the toki that there are many Māori proverbs that speak of its application and people who were seen as proficient in various activities were called ‘toki’. The notion of toki aligns with the name Te Pūkenga which also means to be proficient or skilled in particular roles.

By including the word whakairohia in the first part of the sentence, this phrase is encouraging people to upskill themselves, or equip themselves with the relevant tool. The second part of the phrase is about the future. The word tārai means to fashion, shape or sculpt and anamata is the future. Therefore the phrase as a whole is about encouraging people to prepare themselves with a skillset that will help us all to shape the future.
