At Manakau School we encourage involvement from our parents and whanau. Please accept this as a genuine invitation to become closely involved with the daily life and adventures of Manakau School (Deb Logan-Principal).
We are a decile six school with children enrolled from New Entrants to Year 8, set in spacious grounds, featuring magnificent century-old trees, and a developing edible organic garden. Manakau School consists of four well-resourced classes, two of which are in the well preserved 'Old Block' which was built in 1888.
Our School's motto is 'Personal Best Always' and an emphasis is placed on developing sound educational programmes based on the NZ National Curriculum. Teachers develop programmes where 'Learning is Fun', and 'Exciting things happen!', themes which underpin the entire learning and teaching programme.
Manakau School's Values are Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Diversity and Excellence. These support our schools Vision Statement "To provide a safe environment where learning is stimulating, supported and fun, and where our children are encouraged to achieve to their fullest potential, academically, socially and physically." We currently operate an enrollment scheme, a detailed description and map of the zone can be obtained from the school office.
