Te Kura o Hato Hōhepa Te Kāmura has a long and proud history. We are a Māori, Catholic Integrated kura, the last of its kind in the Far North. In 1897, land was gifted to the Mill Hill Order to establish a school and church and in 1928 the kura opened. The kura fuses its location being based in Waitaruke, its local history and the Catholic Faith to mark its unique position in the world.
As a kura we are whānau/community orientated, offering education through te reo Māori and te reo Pākeha, underpinned by our core values of pono, aroha, tika, and hūmārie. We believe ALL tamariki can experience a successful and inspiring education, irrespective of their circumstances. We strive to prepare tamariki for the next stage of their learning journey by maintaining high standards of academic achievement combined with the confidence and knowledge for them to become future leaders within their whānau, hapu, iwi and wider community. I am extremely proud to be part of the kura whānau and journey thus far and look forward to the exciting developments to come.
