Students Making the Right Choices on their Pathway to Success
The consultation process of the future schooling for students in Hawera is underway.
The process involves an Education Brief followed by a Property Brief. Firstly the Education Brief looks at our vision and mission statements, our school values/principles, and our deeply held beliefs about what is important at our school,
ie respect for school, respect for self, respect for others.
We put great emphasis on our vison, A Pathway to Success as broken down into bullet points below.
The Education Brief asks that we make decisions about buildings that will reflect the character of our school. Special things to think about include, school timetable, how the curriculum is organised and delivered to all students, school leadership and management, how our school links with the community and ideas about how physical spaces need to be arranged.
Our priorities are to have a new hall and learning spaces that can be used in many flexible ways to meet the academic, social and emotional needs of all our learners. A library, will be the information centre of the school, easily accessible to learning hubs holding resources that students can access for their learning.
The Education Brief documentation is in the hands of the Ministry and we are waiting for the next part of the process which is the Property Brief where architects will design buildings to match our education vision.

Hawera Intermediate School Library has risen from the ashes and is now located in the Mill Room by the old Dental Clinic off the Dives Avenue entrance.
We have a small but amazing core of high quality up to date literature, to kickstart our new library collection. Only the best books have been generously donated. These will be available for our students to support their learning later in the year when they have been processed ready for issuing.
As contractors work hard to have us back to our own site, students will begin the new year at Hawera High School.
The goal is to have classrooms ready to move into on our South Road premises by
February 29th 2016.
