Concepts of Hangarau:
Technological developments are informed by
• the diverse nature of people; and
• the needs and opportunities in the wider world.
Students are encouraged to research and explore the values and beliefs of cultures in order to see the relationship between values and beliefs and technological development.
They are encouraged to practice sustainability of the land and the natural environment, and to consider the relationship between practice and the community. The spiritual and the physical aspects of people and the land are one.
Students should consider the sustainable practices modelled by our ancestors through time. Careful thought is to be given to the impact of the technological development on land and environment.
The land lives forever, people pass away.
The land lives forever, it sustains people.
