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.


Click to read about our exciting opportunity – we have a vacancy for a new Deputy Principal.  



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!

Four teams from Haumoana School took part in the Coastal Cluster soccer Tournament at Petane Domain yesterday. The children displayed wonderful team spirit. They were well lead by the Year 6 boys and the Year 4 children who volunteered to help make up the four teams performed strongly. Thank you for the parental support managing the teams on the day. ...

Wow! Haumoana School children can certainly "rock it" and our choir was outstanding at yesterday's Kids Sing Choral Festival. Stunning singing and amazing stage presence made our performance special - (a shout-out to our impressive soloists too who sung in front of 1000 people last night). We were awarded a Silver Award and won the Adjudicator's Award (sharing with Reignier School). Mrs Irwin - thanks again for helping our children shine. We love having your skills, passion and flair at our school. For a small school we punch above our weight. Go Haumoana! ... See MoreSee Less
