Central to the Ngunguru School logo is He Matau (the hook). This hook reflects the tools necessary to sustain life here in our unique aquatic environment. Its parallel symbolism is the skills, knowledge and attitudes our students need to sustain lifelong learning.
The rope that secures the Hook is made of five woven strands. These strands are our school values that combine to hold firm our vision Pupuri te Pihukahuka mo te Akoranga – Hooked on Learning .
The Tukaiaia – the legendary guardian bird of the Ngāti Wai people sits above the Hook with wings spread wide protecting and guiding the learning and future of our students.
