Kia ora, Talofa Lava, Malo e lelei, and Welcome to our Hauora Team
We are based in Te Rauhī
He taonga te mokopuna, kia whāngaia, kia tipu, kia rea.
A child is a treasure, to be nurtured, to grow, to flourish.
WHO ARE WE?
A team of people working together to support ākonga (students), their
whānau and their kaiako (teachers) here at Haeata, to ensure their overall health and wellbeing is enhanced and learning is catered for.
WHAT DO WE OFFER TO OUR WHĀNAU AND ĀKONGA?
A safe place to come to for support, advice and advocacy. We partner with external agencies to ensure strong links that support our whānau and ākonga.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
We all bring a different set of skills but are weaved together with aroha for the community and ākonga of Haeata to see them succeed in learning and in life.
WHAT ARE WE PASSIONATE ABOUT HERE AT HAEATA?
Supporting ākonga, their whānau, the community - empowering them to be the best they can be.
Tēnā koutou katoa.
This is my first year working at Haeata Community Campus as one of the school counsellors. I have been warmly welcomed into the whānau here at Haeata and I am enjoying getting to know the incredible young people, staff, and whānau in this community. I am a qualified and provisionally registered counsellor. I enjoy working alongside all ākonga to step out of old labels and discover who they really are. I am regularly inspired by the stories, the skills, the hopes and the dreams that I get to witness everyday in the lives of our tamariki.
Tena koutou. As a counsellor, I try to work alongside young people and whānau to help make their lives better. I believe that change is possible for us all when we have the right support and the right skills. I am inspired by seeing ākonga take positive steps towards the life they want to have. I am a qualified and registered counsellor.
Gayle Lauder - Kaitiaki
Kia Ora, Mālō lava, Hello
My name is Gayle and I feel really privileged to be part of Haeata where I have returned to my roots of working with tamariki/rangatahi and their whanau in a community setting.
I am a Registered Nurse and have spent most of my career working alongside youth helping them to see and grow their potential, and interpreting this for others so they can access the support that they need or want. I have strong links with health services that work with children and youth.
Whānau, friends, exercise, being at home and in nature are the things that are important to me.
In my role as Kaitiaki I am lucky enough to use all my skills, and learn a whole lot more.
Jacob Murray - Social Worker
Kia ora Whanau,
My name's Jacob and I love surfing, mountain biking, playing the trumpet and adventuring with my wife and toddler! I've been around social services and working with rangitahi for the best part of the last 7 years between Christchurch and Tauranga. As a social worker/ Navigator my role is to help tamariki and whānau navigate some of the challenges of life. While a lot of this involves how I can help you stay in school safely, it also looks like supporting over all whānau hauora where possible and walking through challenges with you that might be impacting the wellbeing and development of our Tamariki. I look forward to meeting you and don't hesitate to ask for help.
Jeremy Faumuinā - Navigator
Kia Ora, Mālō lava
I am Jeremy Faumuinā. For the past 20 years I have been involved in working in local communities nationally and in the Pacific region helping young people and families. I am passionate about the next generation shaping the world we live in.
I don’t believe that there are bad kids. They just don’t make good choices that show their real worth in our societies. I was one of those kids. Fortunately for me, I was privileged enough to have a teacher that took time to care and showed me how to dream big!
I get to be out work my dream everyday showing the same care that was modelled to me to the young people and their whānau, aiga, families of Haeata
