Principal’s Message

Kia ora whānau

It is my pleasure to welcome you to our school website and we thank you for taking the time to visit. We hope to provide you with some useful information about our school and to give you an insight into the wealth of experiences we offer our students.

Maungakaramea School has provided quality education for the children in our engaging learning environment for over 140 years. We offer our students and families a supportive, responsive learning space. Students, staff and parents work together to create an environment where all are valued and each is challenged.

Our school upholds traditional values and provides rich learning experiences for our students. At Maungakaramea School, we believe that children learn best when they feel happy and secure. They are able to grow and mature in a safe, creative and holistic environment that is constantly changing to meet their needs. We deliver a well rounded literacy and numeracy curriculum that is complimented with hands on learning experiences.

On our path to ‘growing our future’, our students require the best possible opportunities to develop intellectually, physically, creatively, and socially. We cater to these needs during our learning through play, Makerspace, project based and inquiry programmes.

Our school is truly a community school, and I would like to acknowledge and thank all the members of the wider community which makes our school a hub of learning.
