Our Name

Te Manawa ō Pāpāmoa

Our mana whenua, Ngā Potiki , gifted the name Te Manawa ō Pāpāmoa to the Establishment Board of Trustees at the start of 2020 and this was formally accepted at the start of 2021.

Although the literal translation could be seen as "Heart of Pāpāmoa", the name gifted to the school ‘Te Manawa ō Pāpāmoa’ by Ngā Potiki, gives synergy and growth to one’s ‘mana’ (identity) over ‘wa’ (time). 

Encapsulating the metaphor of life long learning.
