Our Kura

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. Our school draws from a wide geographical area. In 2021, we celebrated our centenary.

The school community takes pride in the quality and depth of teaching and learning programmes, and breadth of learning opportunities extended to all learners. Our children have a strong sense of belonging, taking pride in both behaviour, performance and achievement  Of note are our extensive and picturesque grounds, complete with a bike track and two swimming pools. We are an Enviroschool complete with vegetable gardens and a small orchard.

Being in the outdoors and trying new adventures are paert of our philosophy.

The school is very well supported by its community and has a family feel to it. We have a great combination of both traditional and modern approaches to learning.

We are a beautiful semi-rural school usually with a roll of between 150-200 pupils, and a staff of  12 full-time and part-time teachers and at the time of writing, and 6 support staff. We are proud that 20-25% of our children identify as Māori. At this stage, we are one of the minority of schools in Hawkes Bay without a zone.
