QTLS Motto


Ko e hakau ‘o e ‘aho ni´ ko e fonua ‘o ‘apongipongi – Today’s reef is tomorrow’s land.


We are all on a journey of learning. Together we navigate the ocean currents and waves of the rich Tongan Language and culture. It’s exciting at times, perhaps a little daunting too, but we stick it out until we reach our destination.


From humble beginnings of learning a new language or for some this might be learning or re-learning a familiar language, we start out small and grow in our knowledge to become more confident and fluent in the future.


The waves of knowledge and information will wash upon our shores over time, until the little reef of today, becomes the big island of tomorrow.
