The Board of Trustees is excited about the future of Hingaia Peninsula School under the leadership of Carly and we are looking forward to working with her to deliver the best possible outcomes for every student at our school.


We look forward to introducing Carly and formally welcoming her to our Hingaia Peninsula School community in the new school year.


Hingaia Peninsula school opened in 2012 and is situated in the beautiful Hingaia Peninsula area in Karaka and caters for students from Year 1-8. Our school is warm and inclusive and we aim to provide a friendly and exciting place for all of our students to grow and learn. We value home school partnerships and the positive impact these can have on student learning and well-being.

Our learning studios are innovative learning environments, purpose built to cater for modern learning practices. We have a dynamic team of high quality teaching and support staff who create authentic, 21st century learning opportunities for all of our students. There is a strong emphasis on literacy and numeracy as well as opportunities for all of our students to experience the full range of NZ curriculum areas through a carefully woven International Baccalaureate - Primary Years Programme.

We provide our students with a variety of opportunities in sports, the arts, and education outside the classroom, through a wide range of rich, relevant learning experiences. We believe that our modern learning environment well and truly prepares our students for their future as 21st century, life long learners.

We look forward to welcoming you to our school and hope that your time with us is a happy one filled with learning, laughter and fun - where every child succeeds in the heart of our community.
