Manukorihi Intermediate School – Waitara
We welcome you to Manukorihi Intermediate School. This site is designed to introduce you to many aspects of our school, as the preferred Intermediate for six contributing primary schools.
Comparatively, we are a small intermediate school which enables us to foster better working relationships between our students and staff. Our school has a strong sense of pride, growth and development, and our staff works hard to provide the best possible educational opportunities for year 7 and 8 students.
We have an engaging Technology Department that includes Food, Design, Science and Digitech.
Manukorihi Intermediate has a strong performing arts curriculum, offering a range of tuition and learning experiences.
Our students have a wide variety of sports and teams to consider, with opportunities to compete against other peers in our Inter-Intermediate and regional competitions.
The staff and students are welcoming, friendly and positive at Manukorihi Intermediate, and we believe our school has many attributes for future students and their families to consider. We pride ourselves on our open door policy for our community so don’t hesitate to come and visit.
