Curriculum Overview

Empowerment of the school values of success, manaakitanga, alofa, service and hanga whare are really important in the Haeata Community Campus curriculum and these values will become obvious in all learning and actions of ākonga and kaimahi. All the learning we design will come  from these values


Ākonga are at the centre of everything. All learning programmes will aim to empower and improve the wellbeing and achievement of each ākonga. Learning programmes are significantly personalised. Learning is centred around ākonga interests and passions, as well as through carefully designed experiences planned by kaiako to broaden ākonga interests and passions.


The cultural narrative written by Ngai Tahu for the East of Christchurch is a central feature in the development of both the physical environment and ongoing learning programmes. Te Reo Māori and Tikanga Māori is valued and emphasised throughout the campus.


Haeata Community Campus pushes boundaries of traditional thinking about schooling and is open to all possibilities for ākonga to engage in and be empowered to take control of their futures.


Collaborative teaching using flexible learning spaces is a feature of programme delivery at Haeata Community Campus.  This means that each ākonga will work with many different adults over the course of each day and week.

Components of the Curriculum

At Haeata instead of organising learning into subjects there will be three main parts of our curriculum-

  • Puna Ako- a smaller learning group with  range of ākonga and one kaiako used to plan and reflect on learning together

  • Kaupapa Ako- the topics and concepts that kaiako and ākonga develop learning together around

  • Ako Ako- A time where kaiako and ākonga are learning together in the various learnign spaces we provide- makerspaces, visual and performing arts, labs, gym etc


Digital Learning

At Haeata ākonga will use a range of digital learning as part of their learning. At different parts of their learning ākonga might use laptops, ipads, tablets and chromebooks.  


Key Relationships

The key relationship each ākonga will have will first be with their Puna Ako teacher, and then with all of the adults in their hapori. There will also be lots of opportunities for ākonga to work with adults in other hapori across the school. The senior leadership team will also be actively working alongside kaiako and ākonga in their hapori.

In the office there is a receptionist, and a Finance Manager and Administration manager. There is a resources manager in Puna Waiora (library space)


Wellbeing Team

A strong wellbeing team operate out of student services and ākonga will be able to access members of this team as they need to:

  • Guidance Counsellor

  • Social Worker

  • Nurse

  • Sports Coordinator

  • Transitions Coordinators
