Whānau Engagement

"Engagement increases when school leaders have vision and are committed to working in partnership with the parents and whānau of all students." (

Whānau hui, Term 2, 2022


Whānau / Family engagement is extremely important to us at Te Kura o Manunui. Working together as a team, we will empower our tamariki to reach their highest personal potential. Together we will provide high-quality programmes which will set our tamariki up for success.  

Ehara taku toa i te toa takitahi, engari he toa takitini.
Success is not the work of an individual, but the work of many.

Each term we have two school wide whānau/family hui.  These hui (meetings) are around sharing ideas and contributing to discussions to help positively shape the way we do things for our tamariki at Te Kura o Manunui / Brookfield School.  

We communicate these hui in several ways: paper notices, various school Facebook pages, school newsletters, texts to parents, whānau and caregivers, Seesaw and face to face.  

Since Covid-19 schools all around Aotearoa / New Zealand have changed the way of working with whānau.  Our school is determined to bring our whānau back into the school.  We are looking at re-establishing groups within the kura.

If you are interested in starting up or being a part of any of the following groups in our kura please email the office.

  • Working Bee 
  • Volunteer reading and maths support
