Maungakiekie Kāhui Ako

A Kāhui Ako is a group of schools and/or kura that formally gets together to raise achievement. Working together allows schools to share teaching expertise and experience so every child can benefit. The funding available will allow our most effective teachers to work with and support others, raising the quality of teaching across schools.


The Maungakiekie Kāhui Ako (MaCoL) is located at the base of Maungakiekie and comprises six schools within the One Tree Hill College zone - Bailey Road School, Sylvia Park School, Stanhope Road School, Panmure District School and Ellerslie School, with One Tree Hill College being the school of choice for most of our students. 


The image is a symbol of Maungakiekie Kāhui Ako which represents the six individual schools collaborating for our collective success. The schools each bring their talents, strengths and whānau/aiga and communities to the collective in a spirit of robust inquiry. The school logos are connected as roots that give nourishment and strength to the tree.

The Spiral of Inquiry informs the fundamental operation of the Maungakiekie Kāhui Ako.

MaCoL is committed to a strong pathway from Early Childhood Education to beyond secondary school. We believe that with our united, committed and passionate teachers we will achieve equity of outcomes for our students. A disciplined approach to the spiral of inquiry will underpin actions and decision making.

‘Weave together the threads of learning’

This whakatāukī illustrates the interconnected relationship of the six schools. We rely on one another to meet our achievement challenges. The woven imagery demonstrates the threads of learning for teachers, support staff, students, whanau and the wider community.


We will weave together emerging, innovative ideas to find solutions for our students in expectation of contributing strongly to the solutions for other learners in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Schools - Collaboratively set goals and values to strengthen our community of learning

  • Students - Experience success through developing agency for their own learning

  • Staff - Strong shared reflective pedagogical practice

  • Whanau -The community is agentic at all levels of our Learning Community
