From the full Māori proverb: "Whāia te iti kahurangi, ki te tuohu koe me maunga teitei" which translates as "Seek out your heart's desire, though if you have to relent, let it be to a lofty mountain"

This whakataukī (proverb) is about aiming high and being persistent and tenacious about reaching your goal. It is commonly used to stress the importance of education.

The poutama pattern in the centre represents ascending to greatness, and the learning journey which continues forever.
