Our name...

Sitting on the old school grounds, our name is inspired by the Te Ao Māori concept of Ako...

Ako describes a teaching and learning relationship, where the educator is also learning from the student . Ako is grounded in the principle of reciprocity.

In this spirit, we hope our reinvented old school house provides a space to retreat, relax and inspire.
