Today, students were given a voting form to have their say on the complementary Maori name for our school, Christchurch Girls' High School. Votes are due by Friday 31 July at the Red Desk.
The names are:
1.Te Huika Manu - the gathering or lighting of birds/ a happy place away from home
2. Te Kura o Hine Waiora - a place where the waters nurture and provide sustenance (knowledge ad learning) to females
3. Te Pae a Hinemanu - the female birds gather near the waterways in pursuit of nourishment (knowledge) and extend their horizons
