Welcome to Manurewa High School

It is with much pride that I have the opportunity to introduce you to Manurewa High School.

We are the largest multicultural school in New Zealand, with 2000 students representing over 50 nationalities. This has a great benefit in preparing our students for the future – a world where multicultural connections will create many opportunities and pathways for success.

Our size and diversity also benefit students in the present, as they enjoy being part of a school that always has cause for celebration. We perform with excellence in all aspects – academic, sports, music, arts, dance and drama. This website offers you evidence of our successes.

I encourage you to visit the school and observe us in action. Student motivation is strong, through the hard work and dedication of a caring and professional staff. We also respect the critical role that parents hold in supporting their sons and daughters through the secondary-school years. We work closely with you to help them to achieve their best, and step positively into their futures as lifelong learners and responsible citizens.

I look forward to getting to know you and having you as part of our community.
