Because Pukekohe High School is physically positioned within the Waikato rohe, and as a Waikato-Tainui kawenata school we are guided by the tikanga and language protocols of the Waikato-Tanui iwi.  This means that we use a double vowel in text to indicate a long vowels sound such as in the words Maaori and poowhiri/poohiri.  This is not a spelling mistake but a recognition of our partnership with and respect for the Waikato-Tainui people.
