We are a family of 5...kids are 7, 9 and 11 (in Sept) so we are looking for an area where there will be good schools for all 3 (I know they will be at the same school initially), and affordable houses (just 1 income for now). Any places to avoid? I would really appreciate any advice. We are arriving early June so not too long to go! Many thanks
Hi,
I personally prefer Napier, but there is not much difference between the two. I live in Taradale, which is really nice, and travel to Hastings to work, it's only a ten minute drive. Schools in Taradale are very good, but the fees for Taradale high school are expensive.
When we first arrived here we were told to stay clear of Flaxmere in Hastings, but I work with quite a few people from there and they're all nice people.
Have you actually arrived in NZ yet?

Hi, we have been here 6 weeks now. We opted for Havelock North and so far we are really enjoying the area. The school the children are going to seems to have been a good choice as well. I have heard only good things about Taradale

I know this post is a few years old but we're moving from Auckland to hawke's bay and we're looking into havelock North. Do you mind me asking which school you went for and if you're still loving it ?

I'd be really interested in anyone's experience of schools in Havelock North, or Hastings, too! We have a possible relocation with husband's job from Christchurch to Hastings, so I'm trying to get an ideas of areas and schools in case we do go. I have 2 children in primary school and 2 preschoolers. Are your children in primary school Nolwenn?

Very similar age to my two eldest then, they are yr 0 and 2 (5yrs and 7yrs old). They are in a lovely school at the moment which does make me reluctant to move, so would be great to hear about the schools in Hawkes Bay.

If we do end up moving that way maybe we could meet up?
