The Maori motif is based on the famous Maori proverb:
“He taonga rongonui, te aroha ki te tangata”
“Goodwill towards others is a precious gift”

The motif design was based upon the following principles:
· A koru design that was symbolic of Maori artform
· A koru design that depicted parents, children and teachers - All intertwined together in some way
· A motif that was uncomplicated and could easily be carved as a manaia if required and worn as a taonga
· A design that could incorporate a Maori proverb that was relevant to the work of the RTLB

The Maori motif shows two smaller figures (children) being embraced by two larger figures (adults)
The adults represent teachers and parents who are embracing, teaching and nurturing the children
This is done under the umbrella of the RTLB’s guidance (Note the umbrella shape)
The motif was purposely heart-shaped – Children are at the heart of the RTLB initiative

“Aroha Ki Nga Tamariki” – “Love to all children”

This logo was designed and gifted to the NZRTLB Association by Wharewera Koopu
