Alfriston College opened in 2004. Thirty-five per cent of students in the school are Māori. The culturally diverse student group also includes more than 20 other ethnicities including 20 per cent from various Pacific heritages and a growing Indian population. The school’s wharenui, Te Pae ō Takānini, sits at the centre of the grounds. It signifies clearly the place of Māori as tangata whenua and represents the school’s strong commitment to its local Takānini and Manurewa areas.
