Teaching/Ako & Learning


(Year 1-11)

Kōmanawa means “a spring of water”.
We are the beginning of our Haeata narrative; the start of the journey. Kōmanawa is the spring of water that wells up, much like feelings well up in the heart.

Kōmanawa is Haeata’s bilingual provision for whānau wanting their child to experience learning through a Te Ao Māori worldview.

Kōmanawa is committed to the cultural narrative gifted to us by local iwi and seeks to ensure tamariki access their own connections to their own iwi and communities.

Our philosophy is centred on ākonga being supported to achieve in a highly personalised way that is responsive to their needs and interests and is underpinned by kaupapa Māori values. Kōmanawa will grow each year until we reach Year 13. A Level 2 provision; kaiako speak between 50-80% te reo in class. Our curriculum document is Te Marautanga o Aotearoa.
