Story: Māori education – mātauranga

St Stephen's cadets

St Stephen's cadets

St Stephen's cadets line up in 1910 for the visit of Lord Kitchener. Students at this Anglican boys' school were mainly Māori, though some Pākehā boys also attended. Initially, St Stephen's did not have a secondary component and students wishing to continue their study would do so at Te Aute College. In the 1920s St Stephen's developed its own secondary programme, which continued until the school closed in 2000.
