I am Otago Polytechnic Student President, this year I have been working on getting a Maori Flag placed out side Polytechnic. Where it will stay for ever.

To celebrate Matariki we all came together to share a Kai, an I felt ot was the right time to ask my whanau what flag they wanted, the United 'Tribes Flag' or 'Tino Rangatiratanga'.

The whanu have picked Tino Rangatiratanga to fly. Which represents a Positive Change through Education. We have one more process to go through.

But 2021 will always be the year we as a Iwi of Otago Polytechnic came together to discuss and change the history of our education provider.

We are beyond blessed to have this opportunity.

Kia Ora my Whanau

El President'e Ezra Tamati
