Thanks to everyone who has responded to our community consultation questionnaire. Your answers and comments are helpful as we start to look ahead and plan for 2018.

There is still time to respond either in hard copy or on line via our school website www.mancent.school.nz

While we may not be able to do everything requested your views are taken into account. Plus the more returns we have the better.

Results will be collated and made known to our Board of Trustees and our community via our next school newsletter.


A reminder that "out of zone" application for 2018 enrolments close on Wednesday 18 October (first week of Term 4).

Please remember that anyone who wishes to enrol in our school next year, and who lives outside our zone, must make application to be in this ballot. This includes siblings of students currently enrolled.

If this applies to you please visit our office as soon as possible. If unsure please ring us on 269 0250.

Well done to everyone involved and special congratulations to these students.

Well done to our school choir who represented us at the Manurewa Schools’ Music Festival last Tuesday night. Those of us lucky enough to attend had a wonderful evening of entertainment.

Thank you to our choir and trainer Ms Michelle Farrelly for making us proud of you all. I would also like to acknowledge Mrs Cathy Chalmers, who master minded and produced the spectacular programme.


Instead of room news we have a selection of photographs from some of the special events we have children involved in recently.

We have certainly had an exciting term.

Thank you.

Does the school have your current phone number so that we can contact you in an emergency?

Please update any details that have changed for your child at the office.

Thank you to those families that have returned their Updating School Records Sheets.

If you have not sent this back to school yet, please do so as soon as possible.

We need these back in case of an emergency with your child.
