Story: Ngā tāone nui – Māori and the city

St Stephen's cadets

St Stephen's cadets

Cadets line up at St Stephen's School in Auckland during the visit of Lord Kitchener in 1910. St Stephen's had mostly Māori boys as students, though some Pākehā boys did attend. Initially, boys from St Stephen's who wished to continue their academic study would go to Te Aute College in Hawke's Bay. St Stephen's developed its own secondary school in the 1920s.
