Welcome to Raureka School

We are a primary school (Year 1-6) in Hastings in 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.

We’re looking forward to seeing all our tamariki back at school on Friday 3rd of February. Stationery will be for sale from Room 3

Mon Jan 23 07:18pm

on Tuesday 31st Jan & Wednesday 1st Feb 9.00am – 12.30pm.

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas with friends and family. It is with sadness that I let you know that Mr Filipo will not be with

Thu Dec 29 02:44pm

us next year. He has accepted a job closer to his family and will be working in the same school his children attend.


His new job starts at the beginning of the year so he won’t be able to teach Room 4. Initially we had hoped that Daniel would be with us in Term 1, unfortunately his new school wanted him to start on the first day of term and this means that he can’t be with us.


As Daniel resigned after the school year ended I have been working on finding a replacement teacher. We have been very fortunate to have found a great teacher to replace him.  We will have Toni Bickerstaff join us and teach in Room 4. Toni is a very experienced teacher and she is looking forward to joining us and working with our Raureka whanau.


On behalf of everyone I wish Daniel all the best in his new job and know that he will do well and thank him for the time he spent with us. 


I would also like to welcome Toni to our school, I am sure that she will have a great time working with the tamariki and our staff. We are so pleased to have her join us.


Have a very happy and safe New Year.


Greg
