Welcome to 2019 – a year of exciting happenings at Haumoana School. Our school has a rich, supportive learning environment where children become confident, successful lifelong learners ready to face the challenges of the future.
The Haumoana School campus incorporates beautiful classrooms with open deck areas, vegetable and herb gardens, fruit trees, a fully equipped kitchen area opening onto kitchen gardens, enviro spaces, open fields, mature trees for shade, playgrounds, all set in our beautiful coastal location at the heart of the Cape Coast.
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 a positive learning environment.

Our vision: Empowering children to thrive and become resilient, responsible, successful, creative citizens navigating an ever-changing world.
At Haumoana School we support our learners to be empowered (confident, independent, resilient, self-managing) children who problem solve, notice, wonder, and question the world around them. Our tamariki create, innovate and ako (collaborate together) within the context of our special coastal/rural environment, while learning to communicate with manaakitanga (respect) and aroha (care and empathy for others). Our tamariki learn and develop through the influence of whanaungatanga – sense of belonging to our place.
Children enter school with different needs and abilities. It is our role to cater to all needs to enable every child to reach their full potential.
Our school values all the areas of learning to ensure our children can thrive in a range of contexts and as life-long learners.
As a school, we aim to be the best we can be in all we do. Our school participates in a wide range of sports and our sporting achievements making us a force to be reckoned with throughout Hawke’s Bay and beyond!
Our school offers a very successful music programme, te reo Maori and kapa haka school-wide with specialist teachers.
