A Brief introduction to our school

Hunua School is a small rural school that was established in 1876 and is set on a hill overlooking the community it caters for.  The school has a history of excellent community support and high expectations for pupils.  It has been one of the centres of the community offering a unique experience for pupils.  Often children have been involved in the school from an early age attending Playcentre before becoming a member of the school itself.  As the school goes from Year 0 to Year 8 we have a family atmosphere, where all children look out for each other.
 
The staff of the school is experienced, dedicated and caring professionals.  We are developing our resources and an excellent technology capability, which assists the children to take responsibility for their learning.
 
We take considerable pride in our school as a staff, BOT, PTA, group of children and wider community.  Parents enjoy an open door policy and there is a high level of communication between home and school.  This is reflected in a delightful learning environment for all.
 
Hunua School classrooms all have devices which are an integral part of the learning that occurs.  We now have a "Makerspace", where we can do anything from robotics to cooking and sewing.
 

Because we live in an amazing rural environment, we like to utilise the outdoors and to give the children real life opportunities to learn in, hence the Junior School have the opportunity to stay at Kelly Tarltons and the Senior School year 5 and 6 students get the opportunity to explore Rotoroa Island with the Auckland Zoo and the year 7 and 8's stay 2 nights at "the Pinnacles" in Coromandel as part of our outdoor education.

 
Mission Statement
 
 
 
Excellence in education through the use of the environment, active student, parent and community involvement and interactive learning.
