About the logo

The beginning of a collaborative and inclusive community… 

Once it was agreed that the Howick Coast Kāhui Ako would develop a logo, it became clear that this would be a way that student voice and collaboration with the student body across the schools would be initiated. All schools were offered the opportunity to engage with their students to develop and submit a logo for consideration by the Kāhui Ako. All submitted logos were sent out to all schools to vote on. Each school identified three logos for final consideration and the shortlist was developed. 

Voting on the shortlist was a task given to the leadership group for the Kāhui Ako. A parent from one of the schools collaborated with the designer to produce the final logo. 

The logo presented is used for the Kāhui Ako branding and on all documents and letterheads.
