Our Vision:

 Nurturing our tamariki to be kind in their relationships, 

curious about the world & creative in their thinking.

Our school is nestled in the heart of the Rangitīkei district in the town of Mangaweka. We are a full primary school catering for tamariki years 0-8.

Being situated close to native bush and the mighty Rangitīkei awa, we have a keen focus on nature based learning and encouraging our tamariki to be kaitiaki for these special natural spaces. 

We are a Bronze Award Enviroschool and have a long term commitment in gifting our current & future tamariki with the skills & manaakitanga needed for being active citizens in their community and caring for the well-being of our natural spaces. 

We value our supportive community & the warm sense of whānaungatanga our school offers.

There are several schools of a similar size in the district, providing a wide variety of inter-school activities throughout the year.
