The Haurakian Charitable Trust

Celebrating the Past, Investing in the Future

The Haurakian Charitable Trust was established by a group of past pupils of Ngatea District High School and Hauraki Plains College in 2004 to provide additional support and resources for the continuing development of the Hauraki Plains College as a rural school serving the needs of our local community.


The Haurakian Charitable Trust is involved in a number of initiatives to meet its purpose and aims:

  • The Hayward Farm Project, made possible through the generous support of the local farming community, has enabled additional income for the college through the generous support of local people. The farm is a five minute walk from the college enabling Agriculture students to experience hands on learning.
  • The Centennial Centre was built after the 100 year celebrations in 2012 and is available as a Sports Pavilion and for community use.
  • The Performing Arts Lodge was purchased from a now retired local chapter of the Masonic Lodge as a Performing Arts space for students.
  • The Dog Box Project. The reconstruction of the school’s original classroom was completed to make the Centenary celebrations in 2012.

The Haurakians
