Kete and pounamu – Sargood Centre

 

The kete and pounamu in the trophy cabinet inside the Sargood Centre office were gifted to the Polytechnic by local runaka. During the opening of the Sargood Centre, Khyla Russell moved the ‘life force’ from S Block to the Sargood Centre. A group from the Polytechnic walked (hikoi) as a group from S Block over the park to the Sargood Centre. The painting next to the cabinet was gifted to the institute. It represents the site and the local chief Poho.
