Our School

Haumoana School is located between the coastal Hawke’s Bay townships of Te Awanga and Haumoana bordered by the sea and headlands of Cape Kidnappers and the Tukituki River. The rural school draws from a wide geographical area.

The school community takes pride in the quality and depth of teaching and learning programmes, breadth of learning opportunities extended to all learners, student attitudes, attractive grounds and facilities. Children have a strong sense of belonging, taking pride in both behaviour, performance and achievement with a well-regarded positive school culture and tone.

We are a Decile 7 school with a roll of  between 160-180 pupils, and a staff of 9 full-time teachers. We are proud that 25% of our children identify as Māori and we enjoy the support of strong close school affiliations with the local Matahiwi Marae and Ngati Hawea hapu.

Our school  hosted the Education Review Office Team (ERO) in November 2015 and we are proud that we have again been placed on a 4-5 year review cycle – this recognises the quality governance, management and teaching partnership in place at Haumoana School.
