Turakina Maori Girls' College

Turakina Māori Girls' College is a Presbyterian boarding school for young Māori women. The school was originally founded in Turakina, in 1905, by A. G. Hamilton.[1] It was relocated to Marton in 1927,[2] but retained its previous name. The Hamilton Memorial Library of the college was dedicated to its founder in 1939.[1]

At the time Māori girls' colleges such as this one were founded, the New Zealand government had no state colleges for Māori girls, but rather funded the education of girls selected as the best from their village schools at denominational schools such as the one at Turakina. At the colleges, they learned domestic skills with the object of turning them into "good women, good wives and good mothers".[3] As of 1931, 45 students were in residence at the school.[4]
