OUR NAME: WHY JAMES COOK?
(excerpt from James Cook High School Silver Jubilee)

The name chosen for the school created special interest. Many suggestions for a name had been proposed by local residents for the new high school which was initially labeled 'Manurewa South High School'.

The Principal Mr. Lane, felt that while it was good for the first school in it to be named after the district, there was a great deal of merit in having the second school given an inspirational name around which it could gather many of its future traditions.

The life and character of this great navigator and explorer contain many of the aims and ideas of a sound education. He was a superb model of honour, conduct and endeavor; a brilliant leader of men who was practical, modest, and self-educated. He was far in advance of his time in the care of the health and well-being of his men and his attitudes to the peoples of the Pacific Area.

His record of splendid achievement and the name of his ship 'Endeavor', which has been chosen as the school motto, will provide inspiration for succeeding generations of pupils at James Cook High School.

Captain Cook

... a man whose sterling if unobtrusive virtues entitle him to rank among the great ...
