Tena koutou katoa e nga whanau, nga hapu o nga hau e wha. Tena koutou katoa e whai nei i te reo rangatira, hei korowai mo a tatou tamariki, mokopuna hoki. Ko matou tenei o Te Wharekura o Manurewa e kawe ana I te kaupapa, kia mau tuturu ai a tatou tamariki ki te reo o nga tupuna.
No reira, nau mai, haere mai, tautoko mai.

Mission & Kaupapa
The aim of Te Wharekura o Manurewa is for tauira to achieve excellence in both Te Ao Maori and Te Ao Pakeha.
Te Wharekura o Manurewa was established in 2002 as a response to the increasing number of tamariki traveling outside of Manurewa to attend kaupapa Maori based secondary schooling. Eight Kohanga Reo, and three Maori medium Kura supported the establishment of the wharekura here in Manurewa. It is established under Section 155 of the Education Act. where Te Aho Matua is the underpinning philosophy that drives Te Wharekura o Manurewa. We are now the only fully registered wharekura Y9-Y13 established under Section 155 of the Education Act.
