Abstract: This study has sought to conceptualise the mentoring of school leaders in Tonga. Despite the number of studies available on leadership in education (Bush & Chew, 1999; Daresh, 2014; Daresh & Playko, 1991; Hansford, Lee & Erich, 2003; Hudson, 2013), very few have conceptualised school leadership from an indigenous perspective (Johansson-Fua, 2007). Of concern was the lack of reported findings that place “mentoring” as a key part of school leaders’ learning and practice in education, particularly in the Pacific (Johansson-Fua, Sanga, Walker & Ralph, 2011). The study foregrounds Tongan indigenous knowledge systems, philosophies, values, and beliefs as necessary in the conceptualisation of mentoring in the Tongan context (Helu, 1995).
