Te manu ka kai i te miro, nōna te ngahere.
The bird that partakes of the miro berry reigns in the forest.

Te manu ka kai i te matauranga, nōna te ao.
The bird that partakes of the power of knowledge has access to the world.
He mihi whanui, he mihi maioha ki a koutou katoa kua tae mai.
This is a widespread greeting of welcome to you all that have arrived.
Nō reira huri noa i pūmanawa o Haeata.
To everyone gathered within the beating heart of Haeata.

Ngā mihi nui, Ngā mihi nui
Ko Maukatere te maunga.

Tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, nga manaakitanga ki a tātou katoa!

Our Haeata whānau have been working hard to prepare our Kura for your visit today. We are excited to have you here and to share with you the endless possibilities and unique wero Haeata offers all ākonga within the mātauranga landscape of Aotearoa.

You will notice some differences in our Kura as you explore the campus today, particularly if you are used to single-cell classrooms. Haeata is a $33M state-of-the-art modern learning environment. I am the first to acknowledge that our Kura has had some teething problems as the transition from the old to the new occurred since 2017. I am proud to say we have met those wero head-on. 

Over the past five terms, since my appointment, we have anchored our innovative learning design into the New Zealand Curriculum, into NCEA, and as well we have introduced an ākonga behaviour management plan – He Korowai Manaaki to support positive engagement and success in ako/teaching and learning and angitu/success.

I have two goals this year as Manukura/Principal. The first is to be mākoha/kind and the second is to be angitu/successful. By working with whānau and ākonga I will ensure we all do the mahi/work required to truly succeed. We all need to pay attention to detail and ask for help whenever we need it, but we also need to accept that we are responsible for our own success and not wait for it to “happen” to us. All I ask of our ākonga is to be the best version of themselves.

Please enjoy your time with us today and ask questions and make suggestions. We are your local Kura and we are here to serve. This is your kura, your turangawaewae, your whare. 

Ko Haeata te Kura

Ko Haeata ahau

Ko Haeata tātou

Message from the Associate Principal

Kia ora, mālō lava whānau, aiga of Haeata and wider Aranui community.

My journey at Haeata Community Campus began in January 2016. From when I was first appointed as one of the foundation members of the Senior Leadership Team, I have worked to partner with tamariki, whānau and kaimahi to give voice to the Haeata community.

My roles as a mother, educator and leader all shape my approach to the way I serve in my role as Manukura Tuarua – Associate Principal.

I believe that tamariki and rangatahi flourish when we value personal and social development, through the building of strong relationships and positive attitudes. I am proud of Haeata’s commitment to foster these aspects of education and to raise up our next generation of leaders. 

Ngā manaakitanga
