Hawera High School has been proudly serving the South Taranaki community since 1919.
Our current student roll is approximately 730 students and we are catering for a wide range of requirements.
Hawera High School is fortunate enough to enjoy educating students in well catered learning areas and prestigious sporting facilities. The Hub – Taranaki’s premier sports, recreation, events and function centre - is at our doorstep, and hosts Physical Education, Lunchtime Recreational Activities, team trainings and games at local, interprovincial and national level, as well as whole school assemblies and our senior prom.
School Athletics are run on the Hub field, with the whole school enjoying optimum viewing from the grandstand. This is also one of the training sites for our school athletics team which has enjoyed success at international levels.
Our very own Bayly Park is located opposite the school, showcasing cricket, football, rugby, hockey and tennis for both our school teams, and those from around the country.
OUR OWN SWIMMING POOL & ACCESS TO HAWERA AQUATIC CENTRE
The school maintains a well presented swimming pool adjacent to Jubilee Gym, where multiple sporting codes and groups train and compete. We also enjoy the facilities at the Hawera Aquatic Centre for our school swimming sports – the training base for many of our students who represent our province at national level.
The school canteen is located next to the school pool, and offers a range of food and drinks for sale. The space, including the outdoor entertainment area, hosts functions and gatherings for school and community.
LIBRARY AND RESOURCE CENTRE
Hawera High School Resource Centre (library) has been redesigned to allow students multiple learning areas and tools. Books, DVD's and other resources can be loaned from the library, and the upstairs study area provides a break out space for self-directed learning. Our nearby Food Technology Suite allows our aspiring chefs to cater functions often held in the Resource Centre.
In addition to the kitchen and Food Studies facility, our Technology wing encompasses computer and multimedia facilities (also located in other areas of the school), Textiles rooms where aspiring designers such as project runway winner Shaun Kelly hone their skills, plus our Hard Materials workshops for all things construction and engineering.
REGISTERED HORTICULTURE INDUSTRY TRAINING ORGANISATION (ITO)
Hawera High School is proud to be a registered Horticulture Industry Training Organisation/Trade Academy (ITO) and is unrivalled in the region for training. Students are able to practice their skills at our Hort block – a space dedicated to green thumbs, and the birth place of many award winning specimens.
