Mangamahu School is a well resourced, sole charge school specializing in catering for individual student needs in a multi-level classroom. We have a large, bright, colourful classroom which connects to the original school building that is now used as the library. Another classroom has been modernized into a multi-function room where art, music, cooking, developmental play etc takes place. We take pride in being part of a supportive rural community, and work closely with other country schools, being part of the Wanganui East Rural School cluster.
