Ramanui School is a U2, Decile 2 contributing state school. Our school was established in 1953 to serve a newly developed area of Hāwera.

Our school community is diverse, enthusiastic and encompasses a range of socio-economic levels. Ramanui is recognised as a school that recognises and values this diversity.

The parents and whanau have high expectations of the childrens' learning which is supported by the Board of Trustees.

A strong relationship has been fostered with local iwi and as a result, the school is supported in the commitment to the articles of the Treaty of Waitangi (Honourable Governance, Agency and Equity) and recognises the importance that this document has for iwi and kura.

Ramanui School, as appropriate to its community, will develop policies procedures and practices that reflect New Zealand's cultural diversity and the unique position of Māori.

Te Ao Māori and Te Reo me ngā Tikanga Māori are incorporated into all aspects of our school's curriculum and daily life.
