Our school’s culture centres on Respect + Responsibility = Results. Hato Pāora College is a boarding school for Māori boys, which was founded by the Society of Mary and opened in 1948. The College’s success with its young students is linked to high standards, values and expectations, which are reinforced in the daily school life and serve to shape the uniqueness of the school in that it seeks to develop HE TAPAPA RANGATIRA (Leaders for Tomorrow) in its students who attend the school from all tribal regions throughout the country.

Co-Curricular

Amongst those offered are a range of spiritual, cultural and sporting activities. Hato Pāora College students have a long tradition of being actively involved in co-curricular activities.

“At Hato Pāora College we aim to develop well rounded young Māori men who are confident culturally, academically, socially and physically. We seek to provide opportunities for our tauira to grow their understanding of responsibility, both in terms of themselves and others. This in turn creates the platform to allow them to consider and develop their own personal leadership potential. This approach is founded on our school motto, Whaia te Tika.”

- Dr Nathan Mathews, Tumuaki
