Our beautiful South Auckland School caters for Year 1 - Year 8 students and is nestled between Totara Bush and the Botanic Gardens in Manurewa.

We draw our students primarily from within our enrolment area. We have strong foundations of literacy and numeracy which underpins all other activities.

We see the education of children as a partnership between home and school. We value parent input and invite parents and caregivers to share in the development and progress of their child/ren at school.

We aim for our school to have a friendly, caring and family-oriented environment. We believe our key to success is happy children, motivated to learn, with parents feeling comfortable to join in the learning process.

We aim to provide a range of challenging learning opportunities within the classroom and beyond and to enable the learner to develop his/her own individual potential. We believe in educating the whole child – intellectual, cultural, social, emotional and physical – in exciting and creative ways.

Our buildings are undergoing demolition and rebuild due, in the main, to leaky building syndrome.  The demolition occurred in August, 2015 and the rebuild is due to commence in June, 2016.  The design of the school is for a innovative learning environment, meaning it will be less of a traditional style school.  We are excited about the prospect of moving into our new school and our staff and Board are working very hard to prepare for this shift.  Regular updates will appear under the 'Information' tab on the top bar above.
