Kahu Huruhuru

The Executive Council showcased the school’s stunning 𝐤𝐚𝐡𝐮 𝐡𝐮𝐫𝐮𝐡𝐮𝐫𝐮 at Monday’s Celebration Assembly.

𝐊𝐨𝐫𝐨𝐰𝐚𝐢 is a traditional woven Māori cloak that is made from muka (flax fibre). The korowai worn by the Executive Council are called kahu huruhuru, as they are woven with feathers and Māori band. In modern times, Māori cloaks are a mantle of prestige and honour. They are symbolic of leadership and include the obligation to care for the people and environment. They have been gifted to Te Kura Mana Ake (MHJC) and the Executive Council.

A special thank you to Mr Morrison, Mrs Hewlett, Miss Tipene, Miss Katafono, Mrs Hohepa, Matua Leeroy and the Puru Whānau, for their collective and time consuming effort that was put into these beautiful kahu huruhuru for our kura.
