Na Dui Toba kei na kena Mata ni Cagi.

Each bay, its own wind.

– Fijian navigation proverb


The Anglican Church in Aotearoa New Zealand and Polynesia has an opportunity to be a significant presence in the space of education.

We have a strong global (trans-national), regional, national and local story and presence, as well as significant historical capacity from our provincial and episcopal-unit archives. We have the ability to produce educational resources that are embedded in a strong mātauranga Mihinare worldview. These stories and taonga can be woven together within a Provincial narrative, allowing our theology and our history to be communicated in an appropriate and effective manner.

The Office supports 10 schools in Tikanga Polynesia, 2 from Tikanga Māori, and 34 who come under Tikanga Pākehā dioceses, providing a point of connection between them all.
