Nau mai, haere mai!

On behalf of the staff, School Board and Home and School, we welcome you and your child to learning at Haumoana School.

I have been at Haumoana School since April 2018. I love the atmosphere, the kids and the community- it's a great place to be. After the best part of 30 years in teaching, I have to say, this school is uniquely special.

Haumoana School provides a rich, supportive learning environment where children become confident, successful lifelong learners. Our school’s values: Respect, Resilience and Whanaungatanga create a strong and positive learning community with a strong family feel.

At Haumoana School we take pride in our balance of good “old-fashioned” risk and adventure with modern digital learning environments and 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 enhances learning inside.  It is a recipe for successful and happy kids.

We are proud of our school which is extremely well supported by a wonderful community. It is this support that enables us to deliver evidence-based programmes of learning inside and outside of the classroom. A close partnership between home and school is encouraged to ensure that your child makes the most of their educational opportunities and reaches their potential.

We would love to see you at school for our formal and informal events, occasions and celebrations in the months ahead. Feel free to contact us if there is anything we can do to help you.

Nga mihi nui,

Liz Vanderpump
