Info session on Manukura School in Gisborne this Sunday

Representatives from Manukura School will be in Gisborne later this month to promote the “special character school” for young people, which is based at Massey University.

The special school caters for students from years 9-13 of any ethnicity.

“We provide a varied curriculum that focuses on academic, sporting and cultural pursuits for the students using a combination of high-quality teachers, coaches and mentors,” said deputy principal Nathan Durie.

“Our special character designation is high performance sport and academics, therefore Manukura provides a full “wraparound’ service.

“That includes nutrition, exercise prescription and coaching, inclusive of individualised academic plans.”

The school offers a wide subject range from biology and chemistry to English, health and physical education, mathematics, physics, visual art, te reo Maori and te reo Rangatira.

The language of tuition is English.

“We offer the balance of self-directed and face-to-face learning, with the support of passionate curriculum leaders, supervisors and tutors, which is now a proven formula for academic excellence,” Mr Durie said.

“We have evolved a system over the past decade that has achieved outstanding academic results.

“Additionally, we provide an environment that supports athletes who aspire to and/or compete at a national and international level.”

The school will host an information session at Sport Gisborne Tairawhiti on Sunday, August 18, starting at 1pm.
