Kaitiakitanga - Guardianship of a Community
St Mark’s narrative is a journey that begins in the sheltered waters of the Ōpāwaho river.
Our Anglican history which is an important part of the community’s journey is woven throughout the garden reflecting our heritage and connection to the church. The river had long been an area of food provision and rest, this legacy is transferred with the students growing and providing healthy produce for the school and local community.
The garden design has been created and developed by junior and senior children with various artworks from across the school.
