In English

Matarau is the mountain
Wairua is the river
Ngātokimatawhaorua is the canoe
Ngararatunua is the marae
Te paea is the meeting house
Te Kahu of Tongare is the hapu of these lands
Greetings to us all
As we gather
All of us as one
The school of Matarau rise up
with love – with feeling

In Maori

Ko Matarau te maunga
Ko Wairua te awa
Ko Ngātokimatawhaorua te waka
Ngāraratunua te marae
Ko Te Paea te whare
Ko Te Kahu o Torongare te mana whenua e
E mihi kau atu  ki a tātou kātoa
Kua huihui ake nei
Kia kotahi ai tātou e (hi, hi, hi ha)
Ko Te Kura o Matarau e maranga  ake nei e
Aue, aue – te aroha e
