NAU MAI...TOMO MAI KI TE KURA O HATO HŌHEPA TE KĀMURA
Message from our Tumuaki
Ruia, ruia, tahia, tahia,
Kia hemo te kākoakoa,
Kia herea mai i te kawau korokī.
Kia tātaki mai i roto i te pūkorokoro, whaikoro,
Te kūaka, he kūaka mārangaranga,
Tahi manu i tau ki te tāhuna, tau atu, tau atu, tau atu!
E te tai whakarunga, e te tai whakararo, pari mai ki te ākau o Te Kura o Hato Hōhepa Te Kāmura. E mihi ana ki ō ihi, e mihi ana ki ō mana nō reira, nāu mai, tomo mai, hau mai!
Te Kura o Hato Hōhepa Te Kāmura is situated in the heart of Whangaroa, under the korowai of Ngāti Kahu ki Whangaroa. We have a long and proud history. The kura fuses its location of Waitaruke, Whangaroa; its local history, and the Catholic Faith to mark its unique position in the world.

I am extremely proud to be part of the kura whānau and journey thus far and look forward to witnessing the exciting developments to come.
