Haleuluhe refers to the home of Kamehameha II where St. Andrew’s Schools now stands and ties the school to the historic roots of this ʻāina (land). It is an integrated Hawaiian studies program that grounds our haumāna (students) in the rich ʻike (knowledge), ʻōlelo (language), mele (song), and hula (dance). Haumāna will explore the culture and heritage that makes Hawaiʻi unique, embody the values (Aloha, Pono, ʻImi Naʻauao, Hoʻomanawanui, Mālama, and Lokomaikaʻi) that characterized Queen Emma and her visionary work, and deepen their knowledge of the accomplishments of those who came before them. By looking to the ancestors, haumāna are inspired to continue the legacy of Queen Emma, perpetuate the history and culture of Hawaiʻi, and contribute to our school, community, and the world. Like the ʻohā (shoot) of the taro, our haumāna will be the new shoots, growing and flourishing while reaching out into the community. At the same time, the roots and foundation of their heritage and sense of place will remain strong. Our haumāna will be the next generation to perpetuate the queen’s legacy in seeking knowledge and wisdom.
