    The Paora Foundation concept was first proposed at our Old Boys Hui held during the 1997 50th Jubilee celebration.

    Bishop Max made the first pledge to the Foundation which was gratefully accepted. Other strong support came from John Tahuparae and subsequently Atawahi Taiaroa (Sir Archie) all of whom have since passed on.

    We owe it to them, our current Old Boys and generations to come to have the Foundation established and operating. It has my support.

    Aku tuākana, aku tēina, tēnā koutou, otirā, mauri ora ki a tātou katoa.

    If we look we will see.
    Ki te aro atu, te titiro, ko te kitea.

    Take our college name, Hato Paora, in which I see something worthy of a mission statement:
    1. HA - the breath of life. Ko te hā pūmau.
    2. TO – that is ingrained. Ka whakatōkia.
    3. PA – in our domicile. Ki tō tātou nohoanga.
    4. Ora – to give it vibrancy. Kia whakapakari i a tātou.

    Brothers, we have all fed well from the pantry of Pāora; let no one of us be guilty of turning our back on our ūkaipo. Be generous in supporting this venture.

    Tāwhirimātea – Pūpuhihia mai o taonga.
    Tangaroa – Haohia mai o ika
    Rongo – Topea mai he waka pounamu.
    Whiro – Whakaritea te ahurewa o te tika.
