Welcome to the Maungatapere School website.

Maungatapere School is a rural school situated on the outskirts of Whangarei about 15 kms on the road to Dargaville.

We are a full primary school, catering for approximately 230 Y1-8 pupils (5-13 year olds) with 11 classrooms and teachers plus special needs teachers and support staff.

Our community are actively supportive of our school, participating in many learning and social activities throughout the year. The school is well used by the community for weekend and after school activities.

We are privileged to have large playgrounds, native trees on site, a hall, library, pool, shaded adventure playgrounds for junior and senior pupils and recently upgraded facilities.

We have a tradition of academic, sport and music success. Pupils are able to learn a range of instruments at the school and participate in a wide range of sporting events.



Hi everyone

As you may have heard, the Williams family lost their house and all of their belongings in a house fire yesterday.  Our school community would like to support them by donating some essential items.  If you would like to donate any of the following, you can drop them into the school office.  Alternatively if you would like to make a cash donation you may do so to the following bank account:

G & S Williams


Items to donate (of a reasonable quality):

Clothes (kids aged 12, 9, 6 years) Gary & Sally will also need clothing.


Bedding ie sheets, blankets


 Gary and Sally would like to say thank you for the support they have received over the last couple of days.





MAUNU SCHOOL HALL - 10.00AM to 11.15AM

Children are to come to school as normal with morning tea but no school bags.

Please leave jackets, sweatshirts, polar fleeces at home.  Wear a t-shirt - no singlet tops please.  This is to avoid further 'lost property' and it will be warm in the hall.

Please collect your children at the end of prizegiving from Maunu School.

Buses and After School Care will NOT be operating on Thursday afternoon.

Thank you
