Christchurch Catholic Kāhui Ako – Bridging and celebrating diversity

On paper, it would be difficult to find a more structurally diverse Kāhui Ako than the Christchurch Catholic Kāhui Ako (Te Māra Akoranga Katorika). With fifteen schools scattered across an area of more than 250 square kilometres, they are one of the only Kāhui Ako nationwide to span the full decile range, and the only Kāhui Ako with five secondary schools. Despite this, they have found common ground in their shared Catholic special character, in particular the Catholic social teaching principles.
