Tae rawa te mahanatanga ki tōu ngākau, ka haere ki te ao mārama.
Hold your Mahanatanga close to your heart, and go out to thrive in the world.
Manaha means 'warmth' and this is exactly what our visitors feel when in our school.
We are a rural Year 1-8 primary school near Nelson and Motueka, New Zealand.
"Get some Mahanatanga and feel the warmth."
Mahana School is a fantastic place to learn. We are a rural primary school with three classrooms and wonderful students situated in the beautiful Moutere Hills.
We offer excellent teaching and learning, a strong vision and values, positive and responsible kids and a wonderfully supportive community.
We are developing 'Relationship Based Learning' school wide, encourage 'Growth Mindsets' and value and recognise 'Effort and Progress'.
We aim to have our tamariki leave as Year 8s with a sense of belonging, purpose and with 'mahanatanga' in their hearts.
