Our Term Three Special Character theme
The God who created the earth wants us to appreciate the treasures He has made and most importantly, entrusts us to be kaitiaki for that which he has made. All power, all wisdom and all understanding belong to Him, and He wants us to trust him and to recognise that he is in control. “He made the earth by his power: He founded the world by his wisdom and stretched out the heavens by his understanding (Jeremiah 21:5). We are led to realise that God has created an infinitely beautiful world for us to care for and enjoy.
Wisdom and decision-makers guided by Biblical principles.
We will also develop the Maori perspective of “Kaitiaki” which encompasses the concept having a duty of care for people and the environment. For Māori, this is the acknowledgement of their spiritual responsibility caring for the resources they work with, ensuring safety, and pursuing quality and excellence, is held with the highest regard by Māori. The derivative Kaitiakitanga refers to the decision-making authority over a resource or resources within the rohe (area) of the iwi and hapū. The kaitiaki are the custodians of the resource(s) and regulate access for and on behalf of whānau, hapū and iwi.
