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.Set in the picturesque Eskdale only 15 minutes drive from Napier City, Hukarere is nestled in a beautiful rural setting conducive to learning.
We have a mix of day students who travel to school by bus and boarders. With a roll of only 120 students, the school is small, ensuring each of the girls receive personal attention in and out of the classroom.
While strongly Māori Anglican, the college is open to all young women looking for the best possible start to life through sound education. Results obtained at the college speak for themselves, with more girls achieving better results than ever. We do not however focus solely on educational results. At Hukarere Girls’ College we strive towards sending girls into the world equipped with lifelong skills, knowledge and confidence. We encourage debate and careful reflection on the critical issues that lay ahead of them when they leave the school.
Good sportsmanship, camaraderie and fair play are fostered through participation in a variety of sports. Students are able to participate in a wide variety of sports, competitions and events, We also have strong links with clubs and regional organisations.
