My name is Paige Materoa and I am extremely excited and privileged to be Manukura for Marlborough Girls’ College in 2021.
As Manukura, it is my role to support my fellow Manutaki as well as the students of MGC to create a diverse, dynamic and most importantly, united whānau while we follow MGC’s three core values of Whanaungatanga, Manaakitanga and Kotahitanga.
