We show care, inclusion respect, support, trust, and kindness to each other.
‘He aroha whakatō, he aroha puta mai’
If kindness is shown, then kindness you shall receive.
We preserve and maintain an environment that enables the Ministry and our people to thrive.
‘Ka mua, ka muri’
The past is clearly visible but the future is not. The future comes out of the past. The only constant is change.
We have trust and faith in each other to do the right thing.
‘He tangata ki tahi’
A man who speaks once. A person who says something and sticks to it.
We connect and work together collectively towards a common purpose.
‘He waka eke noa’
We are all in this together.
‘Mā pango, mā whero, ka oti te mahi’
Many hands make light work
