Kaiona

Over time the name Kaiona has become synonymous with one who helps another find his way. Bernice Pauahi is compared to Kaiona in the song ʻHe Inoa no Pauahi,’ which is performed by Kamehameha students at Founder’s Day celebrations.” (Mitchell, pg. 113)

Kaiona is the open circular foci of the middle school campus, symbolic of a pahu. Each week begins and ends here for the entire middle school as we hear the voices of inspiration and mele to welcome all to Kula Waena.

Kaʻōleiokū houses the middle school administrative offices, student dispensary, and Kalama Dining Hall on the top floor. The Counseling Center and Performing Arts classrooms are situated on the 1st floor of this building.

The younger and full brother of Kamehameha I, he was a popular ruler of Hāna, Maui and earned the name “good-hearted chief.”  Keliʻimaikaʻi was the name suggested for the student classroom building, primarily because there was some underlying character traits surrounding the name and that it would reflect positive character-building incentives in the students and staff.
