Story: Private education

Nga Tawa (2nd of 4)

Nga Tawa

Opened in 1891, Nga Tawa Diocesan School for Girls at Marton is shown around 1913, when it had just been bought by the Wellington Diocese of the Anglican Church. Girls line the drive on their ponies, which they were allowed to bring to school. The school’s commitment to horsemanship continued in the 2000s, when over 25% of students took part in the equestrian academy and competitions, and fully serviced stables were provided for students’ horses.
