Graham of Montrose Tartan

History records the exceptional service given by this clan over some 1600 years to secure the political freedom of Scotland from the colonial rule of England over its people and lands. The leadership of the Graham of Montrose clan in this long battle is well documented. The clan made ongoing sacrifices to achieve religious and political freedom.  Known for persevering against all odds to overcome inequities and injustice the clan has suffered much over time.  The clan motto N’Oublie (never forget) draws on the clan's ancient French origins and urges clan members not to forget their history of surviving adversity and the sacrifices made.  It is the intention of the current Board of Directors to continue this clan spirit through the activities and work of HoM LTD Education Consultants and the HoM LTD now NZCDI (this Institute name change occurred in 2010).

HoM LTD was legally incorporated under the Companies Act 1993 on the 7 June 2006.  The company incorporation was filed by the Chief Executive Director’s accountant, at that point in time, John Wilson, Wilson and Associates Limited of Remuera Road, Auckland, New Zealand.

We Value:
Courage, Chivalry and Christian and Community Service to Others
Our Logo
The company logo was inspired by the clan shield and its unique features and characteristics. Below is the original Helen Bruce painting that inspired the company logos.
