Manurewa Intermediate School is a large multicultural school, located in central Manurewa, a suburb of Auckland's Manukau City, New Zealand.


Manurewa Intermediate School started in 1961 and was officially opened in 1962.


The school draws from a large range of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. This has led to the formation of several cultural groups within the school, notably:

  • Maori Club
  • Cook Islands Club
  • Samoan Club
  • Nuien Club
  • Indian Club
  • Tongan Club
  • Hip Hop
  • E.C.A
  • Cook Island Language Club

The Music Technology complex was opened in October 2000 by The Prime Minister of New Zealand Helen Clark.

Manurewa Intermediate also has a Morning Live school News, called MITV. It has useful information for students at the school (for example: fitness and trips). It is hosted by two students.
