Ākina Man Values

The Ākina Man Values

The idea behind the seven Ā​​​​​​​kina Man values are the values we think will become an important part of our boys’ education and personal growth as they begin their journey in secondary education.

The aim is to provide each student with a sense of identity, pride in themselves, and pride in where they come from, with the underlying theme of respect.  The programme aims to begin a rite of passage, in which we encourage our young men to move towards becoming good men, by reflecting on their own whakapapa, to look forward to where they want to go, and who they want to be.
