We wear the joyous yellow of the kowhai.
We meet beneath the pink of the evening sky, bathing the pohutukawa lined Orongorongo valley in its gentle light.
We proudly wear the orange of the signal fire.
We gather together beneath the cool shade of forest green and the emblem of a chief’s feather.
We are proud to assemble beneath the colour purple and the symbol of the nikau.
We proudly wear the orange of the signal fire. Our maunga is Pukeatua (Hills of the Gods), the range running between Waiwhetu and Wainui-o-mata.
History tells of local iwi lighting signal fires on this range, to warn others of approaching danger. This is our kaupapa, working together that we may feel safe and thrive.
