The students walk, bike or are driven to school each day. The school roll has varied over the last 50 years between 110 –145, the current roll is 100.
There is a Play Centre in the village. Our Year 7/8 students travel to Western Heights High School to attend technology. Most children go from Mamaku School at the end of Year 8 and attend Western Heights High School. Year 8 children from Mamaku often gain places in the accelerate and diligence classes, they do extremely well and go on to be leaders in a variety of areas at school and in society.
At Mamaku School there are several teaching spaces, a technology room, a junior and senior ablution block, a school hall, under cover court area, an administration block, a resource centre, a library, two large playing fields, a BMX/Bike track, nature areas, storage spaces and a 25m x 8.4m indoor swimming pool complex.
Each year we update an “Environmental Vision Map” to focus on developing the learning landscape. We continue to develop the learning landscape with Murals and students art work related to Positive Culture 4 Learning programme, school values and local history and localised curriculum.
