Whāia te iti kahurangi ki te tūohu koe me he maunga teitei

Seek the treasure you value most dearly: if you bow your head, let it be to a lofty mountain.

This whakatauki is about aiming high for what is truly valuable, but it's real message is to be persistent and not let obstacles stop you from reaching your goal.

This Whakatauki relates to our Resilience value.

At Ridgway we encourage children to be persistent and to maintain enthusiasm and humour in all circumstances.
