My daughter turned 5 in October this year and she was so excited to start at big school, we live nearby to Manurewa West Primary School and it was our first option for choosing schools. Even though they do not have a uniform, I think it helped my daughter fit in better. I was nervous about leaving her at school for the first time, more nervous then her and the teachers made her feel so welcome. I feel the teachers are very friendly and dedicated to the childrens learning and safety. We are pleased she is attending a good quality school.
