Kia Ū Ki Te Pai

“At Hukarere we are committed to nurturing strong, adventurous and inspiring young women set firmly on the papa of Te Mihinare.”

Tēnā koutou e ngā mātua, e ngā kaitiakii o ā tātou kohine,

Hukarere Girls’ College has a rich tradition in the Anglican Church and Te Ao Māori. My name is Shona West. I am the Principal of the College, having taken up the position in January 2021.

With a growing roll this year, we are determined to take the special character of the school back to its roots in the Church and our culture, so that we can move forward together.

We strive to uphold the Anglican values of Aroha, Kotahitanga, Manaakitanga, Tautoko, Whakapono and Whanaungatanga.

Our first goal is to focus on learning and teaching so that our young women get the best possible education available to them. The staff and I believe that this is important. We will be looking to make some changes in the classroom that prioritise learning and also reflect the values of the school.

While parents should expect changes this year, they can rest assured that everything will be done in the best interest of the young women and the school whānau will be part of this journey that we are embarking on.

If you would like to find out more about our school or how to enrol a student, please contact us on or phone +64 6 835 8452.
