"Tutika, toro atu ki te kapuhipuhi o te kahikatea.”

Mangatainoka School is a Decile 4, full primary, state school that delivers a wide range of learning experiences to Year 1-8 students. 

We have 3 vibrant classrooms—2 have just been totally upgraded. Our Office and meeting areas  have recently been upgraded and refurbished in 2017.

Mangatainoka is set in a rural community between Pahiatua and Woodville.

The catchment area includes Pahiatua, Woodville, Ruawhata, Kohinui and Mangatainoka.  

The school is served by two bus routes. Tranzit supplies bus tickets through the school office at $1.00 per trip sold in $10.00 lots for students who do not qualify for free transport through the Ministry of Education (ie those students who do not attend their closest school) The tickets are available at the school office.

The school is well equipped. There is a swimming pool, adventure playground, junior playground, sandpit, tennis court, netball court and large playing field.  We have access to the Community hall across the road for indoor events.

All children who attend Mangatainoka School are encouraged to build self-esteem, respect for others, caring for younger children, confidence and an enthusiasm for learning.
