Hawera Christian School aims to have a seamless curriculum from New Entrants to Year 8. This is achieved by using the New Zealand curriculum as a foundation and expanding this within a Christian framework.

Whilst we encourage all students to be involved in a wide variety of inspiring educational activities, high academic standards have been firmly established across a broad range of curriculum areas.


Hawera Christian School has special Christian character that teaches Christian values and character traits through a community-focused caring environment.

We recognise the unique needs of children and place high value on cultivating positive social relationships, in a warm and friendly school atmosphere. The school aims for the highest standards of education to provide for academic, social and sporting experience.

The caring rapport between students and staff is a feature of the school. This is fostered by the strong sense of commitment and dedication in the staff and parent body.
