We have three Kahikatea trees just to the right of our hall. These three trees have roots that intertwine and can be thought to represent our parents, staff and students learning together.
This year Frankley School will have 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 an analogy of supporting learning growth.
- We plant "The Seed". "The blossom" 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!
