Our Purpose

Manea Senior College (Manea) is an independent public school in Bunbury, specialising in senior schooling in the South West Region of Western Australia. Our goal is to develop young adults who are ‘capable and connected’ to the world around them.

 

Manea has an established reputation for offering Year 11 and 12 students an education that enables our young adults to achieve to the best of their ability and to transition into life beyond college. Our students achieve outstanding results through a learning environment built on the foundations of strong relationships, trust, respect, support and individual accountability.

Year of Opportunity

Each year we welcome around 250 new students to Manea Year 11 is a year of opportunity at Manea. It is a chance for students to explore what we have to offer and for students to determine their pathway into Year 12 and beyond.

 

Our students undertake many different pathways so that they use their final years of senior school to create post school opportunities for themselves. Students at Manea can access ATAR and general courses as well as and nationally recognised training qualifications, and are extended financial support to access these VET qualifications. We have a strong moral purpose to provide students with both quality teaching and learning opportunities, as well as life experiences that enable them to transition into the adult world.

Choice, Respect, Responsibility, and Success

At Manea, students conduct themselves with maturity and self-discipline, and their choices reflect these qualities.

SUCCESS: Manea students learn that success looks different for each individual and extends beyond grades and academic achievement. They are motivated to embrace opportunities and push their limits, striving for their personal best. Students are expected to engage in opportunities and to challenge themselves to try new things.
