Welcome to 2018 – 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.

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!

SCHOOL PICNIC TODAY: It is great to see the sun for our school picnic today. We look forward to seeing you at school.

At 12:00 we will meet and welcome the kindy who will be joining us and we will have a little tug of war fun before lunch.

Our Sausage Sizzle will be served close to 12:30 and we will have a picnic lunch together. (Sausage orders have closed.)

From 12:50 onwards families can enjoy the school grounds. The pool will be open and the slippery slide on the hill will be in action for those who are a little daring.

At 2:30 children can either return to class or leave for home with their families. Please notify class teachers of your plans or if you are taking your child early.

Here's to a fun family afternoon.
