About Hukarere Girls’ College
Hukarere provides guidance and support in both Māori and Christian environments encouraging participation and success in a range of academic, cultural and sporting activities. Hukarere prepares all students to take their place in a world of constant change. The aim of the school is to provide each student with a desire for life-long learning so that each can take advantage of employment and social opportunities.
E te whanau tena koutou, e manawanui nei ki te rapu i tetahi ahuatanga, hei whakaaraara ake i te Kura O Hukarere; kia tu pakari mo nga ra kei mua i a tatou. Kua tutuki te moemoea ko te tumanako inaianei kia tutuki te kaupapa kua whakaritea. Heoi ano waiho ma nga aratakitanga a te Wairua tatou katoa e manaaki, e atawhai, i waenga i a tatou whakahaere, whakatikatika mo nga ra e tu mai nei.
Hukarere is still developing, and those who have a keen interest and a fervent hope for its continuing development will require immense energy and commitment not only by Te Whānau O Hukarere, but by all who have a deep and sincere dedication towards the future education of young Māori women. The Church and the Pihopatanga have already made a commitment to give every assistance where possible to bring this to fruition.
The hope is that the School will operate according to Māori principles of education and will be committed to excellence in all areas. That it will emphasis Māori tikanga and language, Aotearoa history and Māori Performing and Visual Art, as well as mainstream curriculum subjects. Last but not least, that the School will foster spiritual education and development of its students through a commitment to Christian principles and through the incorporation of Māori values and tikanga.
