Welcome to the Motueka Community of Learning.
Nau mai, haere mai whakatau mai.
Ko Pukeone, ko Tūao Wharepapa, ngā maunga
Ko Motueka, ko Riuwaka ngā awa
Ko Ngāti Rārua, ko Te Āti Awa ngā mana whenua
Ko Te Āwhina te marae
Ko Tūrangapeke te wharenui
Ko Motueka te kāinga
He mauri tō te tangata,
he whakapapa tōna,
he mana motuhake.
Everyone has mana. Everyone has a whakapapa, a genealogy, heritage and identity that makes that person no more and no less important than the next person. When we learn to treat everyone with care and respect, there are fewer barriers to establishing and maintaining relationships. Address the issues and not the tangata.
