Simply the best for our Tamariki

Our kura has been an important part of the Macandrew Bay community since it was established in 1859. We are a semi rural school, set in the pretty satellite suburb of Macandrew Bay on the Otago Harbour.

We value our location on the Otago Peninsula with its rich diversity of historical human settlement, links to Ōtākou Marae, natural beauty and unique wildlife. Te Rotopāteke is the Māori name for Macandrew Bay. Roto is a lake or waterway and pāteke is a brown teal bird that were formerly prevalent in the area.  We are a keen Enviroschool and we encourage our students to be active citizens who contribute to their world and the lives of others. It is our dream to one day bring the brown teal/pāteke) back to Macandrew Bay.

And in the words of our ākonga, at Macandrew Bay School everyone is welcoming, everyone is kind, and everyone is friendly to one other!
