Taruna as a Cultural Organisation

As a governance body, the Taruna College Trust holds both legal and moral responsibility for the successful operation of Taruna College. This responsibility encompasses relationships with staff, with stakeholders, with students and with the spiritual world. We understand our focus into the future needs to be on sustaining the health and development of Taruna College.

Our role as Kaitiaki (guardians) of the work done at Taruna

Throughout the organisation, at every level of activity and encounter, we recognise that health will be built as we all strive to employ moral technique. We understand ‘moral technique’ as using social processes and skills that enable open, warm and insightful exchange that leaves those engaged to be free. This striving to employ moral technique guides us both in our understanding of Taruna as a spiritual cultural organisation, and in approaching every decision we make with integrity and care.
