Nau mai, haere mai ki te kura o Mangakino!

At Mangakino School, we pride ourselves on ensuring that we live our MANA values every day. 

Our students, whānau, and communities well-being and educational opportunities are purposeful, connected, and relevant to who we are, what we stand for, and the future direction in which we are heading.

At Mangakino School, we are open, honest, and transparent, and we welcome all whānau with open arms. It takes a village to raise a child, and so we purposefully establish these valued partnerships.

Our Localised Curriculum is focused on health and well-being, immersing our students into our stunning natural environment, and strengthening our foundations through the rich history that identifies us as people.

Please feel free to explore our website, and make further contact should you wish to.
