 Educationalist Jill Corkin is leading a community intiative aiming to get a secondary school built in Mangawhai, one of Northland’s fastest growing areas.

Currently local teenagers need to head out of the town to high schools in Maungaturoto, Wellsford or even further afield to Warkworth. Jill Corkin is hoping to change that. She has been the principal of three schools in the Auckland region and is the founder of the Mangawhai Education Trust. 

The Trust aims to establish an independent secondary school for the growing population of teenagers who are among the town’s 6,000 permanent residents.
