Queen Victoria School in Parnell, Auckland  was an Anglican secondary boarding school for girls. It had its beginnings in a pre-1848 Māori girls’ school opened by the Rev. G. A. Kissling in Kohimārama. Later it was opened to pupils of all denominations and cultural backgrounds, providing a sound general education with an integrated programme of studies, activities and experiences, to enable the cultural, spiritual, intellectual, physical, and emotional potential‘ of each girl to be fully developed.

Along with other subjects, Māori language, art, crafts and culture is fostered and taught at all levels. Contact is maintained with local maraes and by helping at huis, attending tangis and visiting other maraes throughout the North Island, the pupils gain meaningful experiences and the opportunity to experience the living culture.

In a unique cultural exchange exercise a group of 40 girls visited North America in 1979 performing at several key points an exhilarating programme similar to the one presented on this record.
