Te Manawa o Hukarere


The Chapel front

Our priority project

In 2003 the college moved its operations from Mataruahou, the Hill in Napier, to Herepoho, Eskdale. Along with the staff and pupils, the St. Michael and All Angels’ Chapel was also relocated. It was carefully dismantled and awaits our energy to see it re-erected at Herepoho. Described as "one of New Zealand's finest chapels" (Te Ao hou, 1953, p. 32), the Chapel was a gift of the Hukarere Old Girls' Association to the College and to future generations of young Maori women. The Chapel project involves raising funds to reassemble the Chapel alongside other college buildings at Herepoho, Eskdale. In this task, we are supported by the tireless energy of Parekura Horomia who is advocating strongly for people to donate to the Te Manawa o Hukarere project.  Watch him in action here, courtesy of Te Karere.
