Poutama Pounamu - Promoting contexts for change where equity, excellence and belonging can be realised.
E ō maunga tapu, e o awa e tere ana
E ō moana piataata,
E ō marae, e ō whare tipuna,
Ki a koe, ki ō whānau, hapū, iwi, tēnā koutou katoa.
Tēnā koutou katoa ngā mihi ki a koutou e pānui ana i ēnei whārangi.
Ngā mohiotanga kei roto i tēnei whakatakotoranga kaupapa, mo tātou katoa, ahakoa nō hea.
To your sacred mountains, to your flowing rivers,
To your glistening seas,
To your tribal places, your ancestral houses,
To you and to your people, we greet you.
Greetings to all that read within these pages.
The knowledge being laid out within this agenda is for us all, from wherever we have come.
