History

Our History

The history of Manea Senior College actually commenced in the late 1960s, when the Bunbury City Council, led by the then Lord Mayor, local GP, Dr Ernie Manea, created a vision for an education and training precinct. A large tract of land was set aside on Robertson Drive to build this precinct on and 40 years later, this vision was realised. Located in Bunbury, Manea is the only specialist senior school in the South West region of Western Australia.

Opening in 2009 Manea Senior College caters for motivated Year 11 and 12 students from across the region, with students seeking university or vocational pathways coming from local, state, interstate and international schools. The range of courses available for students to select from is extensive and our students can now access the largest selection of courses in the South West. The College accommodates the needs of senior school students, providing flexible, individual and innovative approaches to their learning.

Our Vision

Manea Senior College provides the foundation for students to find their place in the global community, developing values and social capabilities to become active and responsible members of society.

Manea Senior College is the senior College of choice, producing graduates who are innovative, independent learners, highly regarded by community, industry, employers, our precinct partners, health and medical organisations and other educational institutions.

Mission Statement

Manea Senior College transitions young adults in their final years of secondary schooling into successful, innovative, respectful, courageous and dedicated young adults. The College empowers young adults to advance in their careers and lives by creating a learning environment built on high standards, trust, respect, support, flexibility and accountability.

The College fosters and promotes amongst its students a sense of being valued and belonging to the College community. Manea Senior College is committed to working collaboratively with its community to create an inclusive, innovative and flexible environment that motivates and engages students to maximise their outcomes. Manea Senior College utilises its unique co-location with South Regional TAFE and Edith Cowan University to maximise its adult ethos and the opportunities for collaboration and partnerships to achieve the shared outcomes that the education precinct is aiming to achieve.

Chloe's heading to UWA

Manea Senior College Year 12 student Chloe Barber is kicking some major goals in life at the moment, having been reserved a place at UWA and being selected into the Department of Human Service’s Indigenous Apprenticeship Program.

Her place at UWA was reserved via the school of Indigenous Studies after attending the UWA Year 12 Leadership Seminar for Aboriginal students earlier this year.

In May this year she applied for the Indigenous Apprenticeship program with the Department of Human Services and was selected as one of the 250 successful applicants out of more than 2400.

Not only is Barber studying Year 12, but she is also completing two VET qualifications on top her school studies as well as working two casual jobs. The secret is organisation.

“I’m quite an organised person and committed to everything I do,” she said.

“I just find time each day to get every single thing done while of course keeping an eye on my wellbeing — there is always time in the day.

“I’m passionate about what I do and that definitely makes things a lot easier.”

All of this commitment and passion will be put to good use in 2019 when Barber will be both studying and working full time, with her sights firmly set on a career in advanced medicine.

“I really want to get into something like neurosurgery or cardiothoracic surgery — something that effects a lot of people and to be the person to make a big medical breakthrough.”
