Welcome to 2017 a year where Haumoana School takes the next step with learning and curriculum.  Haumoana School has a rich, supportive learning environment where children become confident, successful lifelong learners ready to face the challenges of the future.

At Haumoana School we balance good “old-fashioned” risk and  adventure with modern digital learning environments and programmes to produce learners who thrive on challenges inside the classroom and out.  Haumoana School children can climb trees, jump on the trampoline, slide down the hill on  a slippery slide, train on their bikes at lunchtime or rearrange the metal climbing frames to challenge their agility.  Managed risk and challenging opportunities outside the classroom enhance learning inside.  It is a recipe for success.

Strong partnerships, open communication and teamwork are highly valued and we work with parents and whanau to provide a learning environment that supports children to become the best they can be.

We welcome all new enrolments and are happy to show you around our school – sharing our excellent programmes and positive learning environment.




Children enter school with different needs and abilities. It is our role to cater for all needs to enable every child to reach their full potential.

Our school places a strong emphasis on Reading, Writing and Mathematics & Statistics but also values all the other areas of learning to ensure our children can succeed in a range of areas and as life-long learners.

As a school we aim to be the best we can be in all we try. Our school participates in a wide range of sports and our sporting achievements making us a force to be reckoned without throughout Hawke’s Bay and beyond!

Our school prioritises and supports The Arts and we run a very successful music programme school-wide with a specialist music teacher.

We are a health promoting school.  Science, e-learning and Technology feature strongly at Haumoana School and fun, of course, remains a priority everyday!

Was: Friday 23rd June 2017
Now: Friday 30th June 2017

Unfortunately we need to postpone our Matariki Hangi until NEXT Friday (same time and same place) as overnight weather conditions are not ideal for a successful hangi.

Children will need to bring their lunch tomorrow.

We are all disappointed but know it will be worth the wait.
Thanks to all our crew and helpers – hopefully you will still be available next week to help.

There is a paper notice and slip coming home today for hangi helpers for next week. Please return by Tuesday 27 June. Thanks.

Kind Regards
The Haumoana Team

Assembly & Hangi Update:
No assembly this morning due to hangi preparation and class production practises.
Our hangi is being "put down" at approx. 6 a.m. on Friday morning (on the hill) - families are invited to come and watch if they want to and enjoy the warmth of the fire and the sun rise (bring your thermos). All children need to be supervised by parents until 8:10 or taken home after hangi lighting and then brought back to school. Thanks to the great crew working hard to organise a Matariki hangi for our tamariki.
