Nau Mai, Haere Mai - Welcome to
Mangakahia Area School

Kia Ora Koutou Kātoa.  Greetings.

Welcome to our school website and thanks for taking the time to visit and find out news and information about Mangakahia Area School.

Education in a rural setting has many advantages and as one of New Zealand’s 34 Area Schools, we are delighted to offer our students the opportunities rural education provides:

 

  • Small classes that enable all students to receive quality personalised teaching and learning.

  • Leadership opportunities that develop students personal skills through participation in a wide variety of activities.

  • A strong pastoral network where every student is known and noticed and early attention can be given if difficulties arise.

  • Individual programmes to meet student needs.

The school provides inclusive education that uses modern learning technologies and a range of teaching strategies to develop the acquisition of life long, independent learning and research skills. The students are intelligent, creative and inquiring. Effective management systems promote individual responsibility and self-management. Student teacher relationships are mutually respectful and discipline is firm, friendly and fair.

 

The  school tikanga  is centered on the  four foundations of Manaakitanga, Pono, Whakamana and Mātauranga. 

 

Students are respectful and feel safe. Equity is upheld and co-operative learning strategies are used. Students are seen as equal participants in their learning community and are empowered to make their views felt. A broad balanced curriculum at all levels which provides for multi-level study and multiple pathways are designed to make students socially literate. The school seeks academic excellence and has an established reputation in enabling students to pursue both vocational and higher education pathways.

 

There are many features that make our school unique and promote learning in a supportive, safe and fun environment.  We – the staff, students and parents – are proud of our school and any of us would love to have the chance to explain why to you. Please, feel free to make contact by phone, e mail or in person and we’ll show you why Mangakahia Area School is a great place to be.
