Our Vision

"Our vision is for all He Puaawai students to be effective learners and contributors to their communities"

We endeavour to provide a dynamic learning environment that promotes Fraser High School's L.E.A.D values:

LEARN with Purpose
ENGAGE with Pride
ACT with Respect
DARE to Succeed



He Puaawai is a school within a school, based at Fraser High School in Hamilton

We offer up to 30 places for pregnant or teenage parents who want the opportunity to complete their secondary school NCEA qualifications.

Our teachers are passionate about supporting students to achieve their learning and educational goals, and we endeavour to provide a supportive learning environment for all students.

We offer a range of subjects, through teachers on site, as well as from Fraser High School and other outside providers.

Students plan their own individual programmes based on their career and employment aspirations.

We work with youth providers, Midlands health and community organisations, to ensure our students receive the financial and wellbeing support they may need.
