Kia Ora and Welcome to Hautapu School

Hautapu School is a community empowering life long learner’s to achieve and make a difference. Our Motto is ‘Learning to Learn’. At Hautapu School we embrace a culture of learning. Students are encouraged and supported to achieve their best in a friendly, nurturing environment. We develop competencies that ensure students become life long learners. The learning extends to the teaching staff also. We have an experienced staff, who successfully maintains a modern, child-centered approach.

Effective planning and governance ensures Hautapu School is well resourced and students have top quality facilities and equipment to support their learning.

As a semi-rural school we pride ourselves on our community partnerships and the high parent involvement in our school and in the students' learning. There are many opportunities for parents to be involved in a cultural activity, camp or other learning experiences.  Effective communication between the school and our parents and community ensure we serve the needs of all the students who attend our school. 

We look forward to having you and your children at Hautapu School and will work with you to make that relationship a happy, safe and successful one.   

I welcome the opportunity to meet with you.  Please make an appointment with the school’s office manager to meet with me.
