Tēnā koutou katoa
Nau mai, haere mai ki te kura Haeata
I am so excited as we start 2019. The progress we made in 2018 was exciting to witness and be part of and it has provided an amazing platform for what will be another excellent year.
A schools’ staff are one of its most valuable assets and Haeata is no exception. In a time of teacher shortage, we are so fortunate to be fully staffed with high quality, enthusiastic and energising kaiāwhina (teacher-aides and support staff) and kaiako (teachers). We are extremely well-placed to further develop student wellbeing and learning across kura (school)
We have always wanted our doors to be open to whānau and community and we reissue this invite again to begin the new year. This is our place, this is your place - come and be with us, see and feel what we offer and have a voice in our growth.

Directors of Learning
Kia ora Whānau of Haeata.
I feel very privileged to be working in my role as a Director of Learning at Haeata Community Campus. Prior to beginning in this role I worked as a Deputy Principal at a kura also on the East of Christchurch.
I am passionate about community through the lens of a mother, educator and leader.
I believe in promoting personal and social development through fostering positive attitudes and building strong relationships.
The future at Haeata excites me, the opportunities are endless not just for our young people but also for our community.

Ko Kāti Mahaki ki Te Tai Pounamu te hapū
Ko Irihāpeti Mahuika tōku ingoa
My name is Irihāpeti Mahuika and I was a secondary kaiako in Ōtautahi for 12 years before coming to Haeata where I worked in Ihutai (senior secondary learning hub) before moving into the senior leadership team.
I am lucky enough to have 3 beautiful daughters and an amazing whānau who walk alongside me as Kaihautū Whakaako (Director of Learning) at Haeata Community Campus. Born and raised in Aranui.
I am proud to say that I am a part of the positive change through education for our community.
Ngā mihi maioha, Iri.
Kia ora koutou.
I am really thrilled to be part of Haeata Community Campus as a Director of Learning. Prior to taking up this role I was the Tumuāki of Te Karaka Area School (Gisborne), which was a new school in 2011.
I have previously been a Principal also in Wellington, Fiji and Rangiwahia (Manawatu). I have been as Assistant Principal in Paihia, and a teacher at Waiheke High School, Kawhia School, Nertherton Primary (Waikato) and Highlands Intermediate (New Plymouth).
I love being involved in learning that involves the learners in being a full part of their own learning and is easily relatable to real-life. I believe that the more our young people can become actively involved in leading their own learning, the more effective it will be.
Business and Administration Manager
Kia Ora, My name is Debbie Harraway, and I am responsible for the Finance and Administration team at Haeata Community Campus.
After a 25 year career in the banking industry , I am excited to now be in a role that is working alongside passionate staff that are very focused on supporting children both inside and outside of the school.
I grew up in Eastern Christchurch and was fortunate to have wonderful supportive education in all three schools I attended. In my spare time my Partner and children fill up our time with sport, friends, family and travelling when we can.
I feel privileged to be able to have been at Haeata since our opening in 2017 and I look forward to being a 'part 'of the Haeata journey for some time.
