Hukarere Hostel houses 60 students from all over Aotearoa. Being a boarder at our school is an enriching experience that is so much more than simply living at school. It is about being part of an extended whānau and feeling comfortable, nurtured and safe in a home away from home. Our Hostel instills tools to help our kōhine while they are at Hukarere and beyond – independence, self discipline, study skills and faith are just some of the benefits of being a boarder. Our Anglican values and Māori etiquette are part of every day living in hostel.
