Nau Mai, Haere Mai,

Welcome to Te Manawa ō Pāpāmoa School

Ngā mihi nui kia kotou katoa, 

It is an absolute privilege to welcome you to Te Manawa ō Pāpāmoa School that is firmly grounded on the whenua known as Te Houhou in Pāpāmoa.

We opened our doors for the very first time in February last year with 142 kaimanawa (learners) on day one, and we have not looked back!

We are a kura that is passionate about creating a responsive environment where Manawatanga is at the heart / ngākau of all that we do to enable our kaimanawa to: 


We consider it a huge privilege and responsibility to connect, explore, harness and extend the strengths, aspirations and goals of the Pāpāmoa hapori, whānau and kaimanawa so that all of our Learning Partners thrive by the time they leave our kura. 

Whanaungatanga and relationships drive our open door philosophy and we are acutely aware that it takes a village to raise a child, which enables us to co-construct a one size fits one learning pathway for you and your child.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Ngā Manaakitanga

Shane and the Te Manawa team
