About Us


Manaia School supports the future success of our community by providing children with a universal place where they can learn how to respect one another both inside and outside of school. The importance of this is backed by evidence and general common sense as it helps to build a positive culture.

The unique way in which Manaia School approaches learning has been developed through consultation with children, parents and our community.  Our philosophy is scientifically proven to be the most effective and engaging approach towards learning and brain development for Year 1-8 students.   

Our forward thinking approach, along with our whānau like context provides a rich and friendly environment for children to nurture their curiosity. 

The team at Manaia School work in collaboration to develop hearty children who have a belief in their ability to achieve anything they put their mind to.  Our children are encouraged to have respect for themselves, others and the environment.  We also support them to see the value and need for equality and equity in the world.

We genuinely care and invest in the success of all our children and always look forward to new members joining our school family.
