Leadership Academy of A Company

The Leadership Academy of a Company (He Puna Marama Trust) for Māori boys in Northland draws upon core values of the 28th Māori Battalion and three pou or platforms: “Be Māori, be rangatira and be educated”.

It has proven successful, with 100% of students achieving NCEA qualifications. In 2014, He Puna Marama Trust was able to access funding as one of the first partnership schools opened by the Ministry of Education.
