Our Board of Trustees is committed to providing our students and teachers with the best possible teaching environment and up-to-date resources, which enable students to succeed with their learning.

  • The Board has established a Samoan bilingual unit called Team Manumea, which provides learning in both Samoan and English languages. Mrs. Malo Sepuloni is the Team Leader and would love the opportunity to speak with you about enrolling you Samoan son or daughter in Team Manumea.

  • The Board is committed to seeing student using digital technologies that support students learning. In partnership with Samsung NZ, classrooms have been resourced with a mix of Chrome books, Notebooks and Tablets. Classrooms also have data projector or portable TV monitors through which digital devises can be streamed.

  • Would you like your child to have the experience of being a radio station DJ? At our school, we have our very own radio station – 107.1 MEPS FM that runs 24/7 and has a broadcasting frequency range of 5km from our school. While we have programmes running 24 hours a day the children are live on air before school and during our two forty minute break times, providing the children with the opportunity to develop their oral language and to research local, national and international news, interview guests in the studio and create playlists of great music.

  • Our school is committed to building children’s physical fitness and involvement in organised sports. To this end, children are involved in daily physical activity, once a week team sports are organised and throughout the year our school sends sports teams to participate in Auckland-wide competitions. While our school has had significant success in rugby league, softball, netball, hockey and more recently cricket, we also participate in cross-country, athletics, swimming, basketball, tag and soccer.

  • We love to provide opportunities for children to develop high levels of responsibility and leadership. At our school, these opportunities include student council, class monitor, fruit and lunchroom monitors, road patrol monitors, environmental team and school ambassadors. In all these roles, we support the students to do their best and it is great to see them fulfil these roles with a great sense of service to our school.

  • Our school likes to provide students with outdoor education experiences. These range from trips to the beach, museum, Kelly Tarlton’s or the Tip Top factory to visiting local areas like The Education Centre at Mangere Mountain, Massey Homestead, Mangere Swimming Pools and the SPCA. For our senior students we also like to give them day and overnight camping experiences which are held both at school and at campsites around Auckland. We always welcome support from parents to provide assistance on such trips and camps.

  • Because we have our own school swimming pool the children are able to swim in Terms 1 and 4; teachers also supervise swimming for small groups of children during morning tea and lunchtimes.

  • Regular team and full-school assemblies are also held throughout the term; the dates and times of these are published in the school newsletter and one our website www.meps.school.nz and parents/whānau are welcome to attend.
