Teaching/Ako & Learning

Services Programme

The Haeata Community Campus Services Programme is a military styled programme supported by both the MInistry of Education and the New Zealand Defence Forces Youth Developments Unit South based at the Burnham Military Camp.

About our Services Programme

Our ākonga ( students) will participate in the normal day to day learning with all other ākonga at Haeata and will be expected to work alongside kaiako and our Kaiārahi Ope Katua (Leader of the Defence Programme). Services ākonga will have access to all resources and learning to give them the best possible opportunity to attain their goals of a career in the defence force.

Included in the programme, along with educational outcomes, is a strong focus on developing students’ self-discipline and maturity, collaborative and problem solving skills.  Along the way we support students to establish and maintain positive and respectful relationships with others.  

Students in the services programme will participate in a range of motivating and challenging learning experiences:

“Michelle [student name changed for privacy] still strives to do and be the best person she can be. Since leaving Haeata she has found full-time employment and in a short period of time is now a team leader for a Huge New Zealand company as well as having offices worldwide.We are so proud of Michelle’s achievements, her strong sense of responsibility in her work ethics and towards her whanau. We are assured that due to the participation in the programs that were offered to her whilst being a student at Haeata definitely helped Michelle on the pathway to being a Young Leader of Tomorrow.”
