What it means to be in Team Kahu

Our native bird of prey, the kahu (also known as the Australasian Harrier Hawk) is very common in Southland, often seen gliding over paddocks searching for prey.

Like the Kahu we are soaring through our own journey - a learning journey - scanning and search for new knowledge and skills that we will grab and scavenge with both 'talons', taking large bites with our strong 'beaks'!

For Maori, the Kahu is a symbol of victory and chieftainship - with Year Six pupils having leadership roles within the school, we are certainly going to try to do our best to live up to the legacy of the Kahu.
