Kacey is our School Logo
Kacey’s name is derived from the key competencies often referred to as KCs. The HERO refers to our important school values of Honesty, Excellence, Respect and Open minded.
Kacey wears the Tauhei Combined School Sports uniform and gumboots. She has maroon and blue colourings which represent our school colours.
Kacey carries a Maori kete made of harakeke. This is significant because historically there were flax mills in Tauhei. The kete acknowledges the bicultural heritage of New Zealanders.
At Tauhei Combined School there is an expectation that each person should put something new in their own kete of knowledge every day as they grow towards being their own Team Tauhei Hero.
