Manurewa West Primary School - Wisdom Through Understanding

Healthy School

 
At Manurewa West Primary School we are a 'Healthy School'. Our programmes reflect the schools policy of "Promoting learning engagement and student achievement through a healthy school”

We support good nutrition and the fruit in schools programme supplying fresh fruit to students every day.

We have a NO fast food policy encouraging families to eat healthy by packing nutritious lunches for their children that will help students stay focussed and energised right to the bell.

In class programmes identify different food options that will help promote general wellness and a healthy body.
 

Canteen:

A health focussed canteen run by an outside agency provides children with cost effective, healthy lunches.
