Mana Tane

Our Mana Tāne (Growing Young Men) programme is a five-year personal development programme designed by our experts in psychology, wellbeing and teaching and learning. It forms the basis of our pastoral care programme.
The role of Mana Tāne Kaiako (teacher) is to provide advocacy, guidance and care for the small group of young men in their Mana Tāne class. Through small groups of students, Kaiako get to know and form trusting relationships with their students and whānau.

Home and school partnerships are highly prioritised as we work together to prepare our young men for their future aspirations.
Mana Tāne uses practical learning and everyday experiences that support students to live out the values and virtues we intend for students to aspire to in their daily lives.

Through Mana Tāne, students receive age-appropriate learning incorporating positive psychology, hauora (wellbeing), positive relationships, goal setting, social media, sleep, brain development, study techniques, and career education.
