Whare Karakia

The Christian Faith Built in 1900, our whare karakia is a beautiful and tranquil place for worship.

The stained glass window is a memorial to a previous school Principal.  Religious Instructions at Te Aute is not only incorporated into the daily programme but is a living thing which is shared in our everyday life.

Chapel service and/or prayers, in which both staff and students participate are held each morning and evening usually in conjunction with parade.  We practice the Anglican faith but welcome all denominations. Taha wairua is very important in Tikanga Māori, and is therefore, most important in the kaupapa of Te Aute College.  Students are to be dressed appropriately (school uniform) when attending services.
