WELCOME TO MANUREWA WEST
SINCE 1963

Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2019 school year!

I am extremely excited to begin my first year as Principal, to work together in partnership with whanau and families to ensure every child at Manurewa West Primary School is actively involved in a fun, challenging and robust learning environment while developing skills that will foster our values of respect, responsibility, self-discipline, honesty and pride, supporting them to collaborate and communicate effectively within our richly diverse school community.

Our entire school team is eager and excited to begin what promises to be an incredible year, with the new build underway and the changing landscape of the school becoming more evident each day. Many exciting developments will unfold during the course of this year, it certainly will be a busy and exciting one.

Throughout this year students will have access to hands on learning experiences as they explore how the world around them works through the excitement of science and technology, coding and robotics, literacy and maths, the arts integration, as well as a strong focus on cultural identity , sports and health and well-being.

Our teachers have been busy with professional development and will continue to engage in as many professional learning opportunities throughout the year to ensure they have the skills and strategies to provide opportunities for students to be critical thinkers, to innovate, create, collaborate, communicate and be curious about their learning.

One of the greatest characteristics of our school is “The Manurewa West Way” of caring and compassion for each other, staff nurture students, students feel safe and happy to be at school. We look forward to engaging regularly with and working alongside all of our whanau and families throughout this year.

Best wishes for the year ahead.

Regards

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.
