Manea Senior College Principal Rod Rykers welcome message
Manea Senior College recognised as “a premier provider of VET and ATAR courses in the greater Bunbury and south-west region”
Independent Review 2016
Welcome to magnificent Manea Senior College.
Manea Senior College opened its spectacular facilities in February 2009. Located in Bunbury, Manea is the only specialist senior school in the South West region of Western Australia. For independent minded, goal orientated, respectful Year 11 and 12 students, who enjoy being treated as young adults and share our core values of choice, respect, responsibility and success, Manea Senior College has become the most popular choice for senior schooling in the South West. Such is our reputation, parents have enquired about enrolment as far ahead as 2023!
After only six years since opening, Manea Senior College has the largest number of senior secondary students and offers the largest range of senior school courses in the entire South West.
In addition to a huge range of courses on offer, Manea has become the first secondary school in Western Australia to offer a Health and Medical Specialist Program. This program gives our students interested in exploring careers in the health and medical fields a head start in their skills and knowledge.
Manea attracts students from over 30 schools, including significant numbers from private schools. Our students attend from towns and areas throughout the region, including some who travel for 3 hours per day to attend. This is not surprising when you look at what Manea offers and the results we have achieved.
Our results are pretty impressive for such a young senior school. Since opening, Manea has had students who have achieved an ATAR of 99+ and significant numbers of students achieving a Certificate III or Certificate IV along with their Western Australian Certificate Of Education. Our students have been head hunted for apprenticeships and have gained entry into highly competitive university courses such as medicine and engineering.
Manea was the first regional secondary school in W.A.
