Principal's Message

Kia Ora, Talofa Lava, Kia Orana, Malo e lelei, Bula Vinaka, Namaste, Ni Hao, Fakalofa Lahi Atu and

I feel privileged and honoured to be at the helm for the next two terms, of one of the finest primary schools in New Zealand.

At Manurewa West Primary School, we are proud of who we are, where we come from and of the bright future we can look forward to through our learning journey at school. It is our firm belief that every child has the potential to be successful if they attend school regularly and engage with the many and varied learning opportunities provided within and beyond the classroom. We celebrate and leverage our cultural diversity, sharing and learning from each other and build respectful partnerships with our whanau and school community through an “open door policy”.

Many exciting developments are currently happening at Manurewa West Primary School:

  • Completion of the installation of the artificial turf, providing year round access to a playing surface for all our children
  • The end of August sees the completion of the refurbishment of Rooms 1-4 into modern and spacious classrooms, enhanced by the construction of landscaped gardens and an outdoor learning area
  • September sees the start of the build of a brand-new 2 story futuristically designed 12 classroom block with flexible learning spaces

Feel free to drop in and talk to us about any concerns or queries. I look forward to seeing parents/whanau and students alike around our beautiful school.

Acting Principal

Two chief’s sons competed with each other on who had the best kite. The winner was able to settle in the location now known as Manurewa.

The birds are symbolic of kites, as well as the breeding sanctuary of the Manukau Harbour and the migration journeys many of our bird species take.

The sea represents Manurewa’s closeness to the Manukau Harbour, being on the West Coast of Auckland.

The spouting water symbolises in its koru form, the connection we have with our Maori Culture, growing multi-cultures and the pride we have in our identity.

The sun represents light and energy, therefore brightness and warmth. The horizon of the sea is symbolic of the future.
