Turakina Maori Girls College

Turakina Maori Girls College (T.M.G.C.) is a girl's boarding high school in Marton, New Zealand. Founded in Turakina on 13 April 1905 by the Presbyterian Church of NZ, the school transferred to Marton in 1927, the dorms and administration areas being rebuilt by 1983. More than 2,500 girls have had the privilege to acknowledge T.M.G.C. as alma mater, and we hail from many cultures throughout NZ and the Pacific.

Friends of T.M.G.C. Association

Established 1957 by Miss Pat McChesney, the Friends of T.M.G.C. Assoc. is a church based organisation that assists T.M.G.C. through their sales of items like Christmas cards, Gala Days and other fundraising events, or by direct giving.

Over the years, the association has helped raise funds for assets, buildings, fences, netball courts, trips and every year they give a scholarship to a girl which she retains as long as she remains at school. Mrs Shirley Cormack now leads the Friends of T.M.G.C. Association.

If you would like to support this group and become a member, the membership fee is $NZ 5.00 per annum, you will also receive 2-3 newsletters a year. If you are interested in joining, the address of the Treasurer is:
