Tuia te rangi e tū nei, tuia te papa e takoto nei. Tuia ngā muka here tāngata ki te māramatanga e whiti ana, kia puta ki te whai ao, ki te ao mārama! Tihei mauri ora!
Hamilton Girls’ High School is committed to kaupapa Māori.
Mana Forbes along with the kura whaikairo o Te Wānanga o Aotearoa in Te Awamutu carved the whakairo that adorn our marae, Te Ao Mārama.
Within are tributes to many wāhine rangatira important to the Tainui region, including Kuotepo, Apakura and Mahinaarangi. Te Ao Mārama pays homeage to the creation story, whilst acknowledging the importance of schooling to gain a greater understanding of the world. Te Ao Mārama has been a hub of our commitment to Māori language, culture and identity for many years, and is located in the heart of our kura.
