Welcome to Mangere Central
Education is evolving. This not only includes what we learn but specifically - how we learn. Education is no longer a one cell classroom with one teacher. An integration of traditional teaching with 21st teaching is what is needed for our children's future and our future children.
At Mangere Central School our teaching and learning programmes are developed with this in mind. From growing thinking skills to growth mindsets, our day is a mixture of collaborative and independent learning activities within a multicultural environment.
We hope you will join us on our learning journey.
Any parents or children who have travelled
to China must remain away from school for 14 days
on their return to New Zealand.
Please do not enter the school grounds
during this time
(this includes our office area).
Please keep up to date on our website or
on our Facebook page.
For more details contact feel free to contact us.
Please email or call us to advise if your child is
remaining at home in quarantine.
Novel Coronavirus Update - 28 January 2020
Mangere Central school is taking very seriously the potential risk of infection from the new Coronavirus.
Current advice from the Ministry of Education (M.O.E.) is that the risk is low, although general media reports seem to indicate a quickly changing situation and we are monitoring this closely.
The District Health Board has informed us that the virus presents with flu-like symptoms and in most cases leads to a mild to moderate illness. Seek medical advice from a Doctor if you or family members experience flu-like symptoms or fever.
The latest Ministry of Health advice for travellers can be found here - https://www.safetravel.govt.nz/news/novel-coronavirus-china-2019-ncov.
The city of Wuhan, from where the virus originates, has been closed for all travel, and is therefore now isolated.
However, any students who have recently been in China, and or suspect they may have been in contact with the virus, are asked to stay away from school for 14 days (or until Doctor's clearance) and advise the school immediately - firstname.lastname@example.org - with the date of entry back into N.Z., and cities travelled, to enable us to contact you if required.
(Note: the 14 days starts counting on the day of your child’s arrival back into NZ).
The Ministry of Health is monitoring the situation and will provide further advice to us if needed.
You may visit the Ministry of Health website for further information
In the meantime, to help reduce the general risk of infection, it is essential we continue to:
- Teach our children how to frequently wash hands correctly
- Practise cough etiquette e.g.keep away from other people when coughing, cover coughs and sneezes with disposable tissues or clothing or cough into elbow, and wash hands afterwards
- Avoid close contact with people showing symptoms of flu
