Mauria te pono
Believe in yourself
Aroha ki te tangata,
Ahakoa ko wai te tangata
Love people,
in spite of who they are
Mai i te Kōpae ki te Urupa,

From the cradle to the grave
we are forever learning.
Ko au te awa,
Ko te awa ko au.
I am the river

If kindness is sown
then kindness you shall receive.
He ora te Whakapiri,
He mate te whakatariri.
There is strength in unity, Defeat in anger.
Toitu he kainga,

Whaowhia te kete mātauranga.
Fill your basket of knowledge.
Tangata takahi manuhiri, he marae puehu
A person who mistreats a guest has a dusty marae
