Puhoro Huntly College: 

Designed locally and with kaumatua approval, we are excited by this new concept. The motif or puhoro depicts relationships between staff, students and the community. Waikato – Tainui, the Kingitanga, the journey travelled by the Tainui waka from Hawaiki to its resting place in Kawhia. The journey of students through school and the importance of education and ultimately the place of Huntly College is central to this design. 

The adoption and inclusion of this puhoro symbolises several significant features. This is local, and relates directly to our College, our area and relationships in our school. Waikato-Tainui, Kingitanga and the land the College sits on, are all part of this motif. The journey that students must encounter to be successful as they enter and some later leave College is represented in this puhoro.
