Welcome to Raureka School

We are a primary school (Year 1-6) in Hastings in the sunny Hawkes Bay. At Raureka School we are committed to giving all our ākonga/students the best education possible. Our mission statement captures our approach to learning: “Confident, connected, curious children who strive for personal excellence”. 

We aim to nurture tamariki/children and their unique talents. We believe that ‘one size does not fit all’, and all learners are unique. Students are part of the learning process and have opportunities to transfer their understanding in many contexts.  Read more
