Kia ora koutou,


Welcome to Mangakahia Area School.  We are a small, friendly school where positive relationships are valued and embraced.  Our school values of pono, manaakitanga, whakamana and matauranga underpin the interactions within the school.  These values are actively taught, encouraged and recognised.  We encourage all students to be the best version of themselves and to take responsibility for their learning and behaviour.  Our small class sizes allow our staff to support each student to realise their potential. 

We are very proud of the 2023 NCEA results where 91% of students who were at school for the full 2023 academic year achieved NCEA Level 1 and 100% of the students in years 12 and 13 achieved NCEA Level 2.  In 2024 we are continuing to raise the bar by encouraging students to gain an endorsement (14 credits) in each of their courses and to aim for Merit and Excellence grades.


We encourage our students to be actively involved in all that school has to offer by providing a range of opportunities such as in sport, culture, service and through Gateway work experience placements.  Students are actively encouraged to take up leadership roles within the school on the Student Council, as student librarians, in kapa haka, within curriculum subjects and during the hapū time programme.   We facilitate and nurture tuakana-teina relationships through hapū classes and through regular inter-hapū competitions and challenges. 

All whānau and community members are encouraged to become involved in the school, to be in the waka with us, paddling in the same direction.  


Ngā mihi,


Rachel Clothier-Simmonds
