Manakau School Music Festival
Manakau School Cricket Team
Today at the Basin Reserve Brendon McCullum became the first New Zealander to score a triple century in test cricket. Not since Donald Bradman and Walter Hammond in the 1930s, has a player ever scored double and triple centuries in consecutive tests.
Why is this important? It probably isn't but this afternoon Manakau School were playing cricket at Donnelly Park in Levin. The Manakau mixed team did really well against an all boy team who looked like they play a lot of cricket.
There could be a Brendon McCullum playing today lets hope so.
Welcome to Manakau School
The school's vision is to develop academic, social, physical and spiritual growth in children and therefore equip them with the qualities they need to develop a rewarding future.
Specifically, it aims to achieve excellence in literacy and numeracy, whilst providing exciting opportunities in ICT and The Arts
Established in 1888, Manakau School is situated just off State Highway One, 7km north of Otaki, on the outskirts of the small attractively presented village of Manakau. This decile five school enrols children from New Entrants to Year 6 and consists of three classrooms, of which two are currently used and are composite over at least two age levels. Thirty six percent of the children attending Manakau School are boys, with twenty five percent of children Maori.
