He Mātāpono: Our Values and Principles

This unique model is a partnership between leading newsrooms grounded in the whakapapa of Te Rito.

Te Rito is the emerging shoot at the heart of the harakeke, flax plant.

It represents our trainees.

Te Awhi Rito are the surrounding leaves, which nurture and protect.

These are our trainers.

Te Matua Rito are the experienced external leaves, which anchor the ecosystem.

This represents our news executives.

Our kaupapa is the shared responsibility of many. Our collective skills and resources enable success.

Our value is people.

He tangata! He tangata! He tangata!
