Glendene is named after a farm in the area owned by Percy Jones, which had been later subdivided into housing. Most of the growth as a suburban neighbourhood took place in the 1960s and 1970s.

In April 2014, Glendene became a member of the new Kelston electorate.

The Glendene Community Hub was opened in March 2015 in response to Council studies that revealed a need for community growth in the area.

Nearby secondary schools are Henderson High School, Kelston Boys High School, Kelston Girls College, Liston College and St Dominic College.
Glendene is primarily a suburban neighbourhood with a north-eastern section dedicated to the light industry. Affordability and proximity to Henderson, New Lynn and the highway are major attractions for Glendene. With convenient access to the motorway, the Auckland CBD and the North Shore, and plenty of public transport options in the area, many people prefer to live in Glendene and work in the vicinity.

The number of schools, preschools, local reserves and shopping malls in the area makes it an attractive location for many different lifestyles, and the demand for rent is high.

#AukilaniAlumni with some #MondayMotivation ✨Talofa lava, meet Dr Emma Chang Wai who was born and raised in South Auckland and Samoa. 🇼🇸

"Being raised in Samoa - New Zealand was often referred to as the land of milk and honey. Yes correct. But New Zealand is also the land of opportunities." 🤩

"When we first moved here, I had to finish high school. My mum had to work as a checkout operator and at the lotto section of the local supermarket. She wanted me to go to a Catholic school because we are a Catholic family and I always went to Catholic schools in Samoa. However, we couldn't afford private Catholic education. So I attended Mangere College. It was the best decision for me. It doesn’t matter what school you go to, poor or rich, private school or public school - as long as you work hard, you can and you will achieve!"

Emma graduated from the #UniversityOfAuckland with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery #MBCHB in 2011. 👩🏻‍⚕️ She is now a #GeneralPractitioner across #WestAuckland and #SouthAuckland suburbs.

Emma's advice for UoA Maori and Pasifika students is to "avoid the temporary distractions of life. During this challenging time, keep your eye on the prize. Work hard and you will succeed, you will get there!" 📚😍

Outrageously Fortunate to be immersed in Auckland’s West Coast☀️ There was no surf lifesaving squad today but boy oh boy did Piha rescue me! It’s so easy to get lost in work these days, but we must remember to take a break even for just a few hours. Work will still be there tomorrow but when the sun sets that day is gone forever 🤷🏼‍♀️ So ceasing the day, we blasted out here after a hectic shift in ED 🆘 Sandy toes and sunsets will always be my favourite kind of therapy 🌅🥰 •

The homies riseracrew recently dropped the visuals for ‘Focus On Me’ prod by lightskinjohn.824 co-produced by brandnshiraz video directed, shot & edited by the talented afilmbypedro out now on all streaming platforms.
Run that link in homies bio >>>

This video was truely amazing to witness, to see the hood come together like that, shit was a real buzz and refreshing as fuck. Ranui holds a close place to my heart. Growing up out west and being involved with 833 records and the Weststeez albums in the mid 2000’s, I knew a handful of rappers from Ranui / West Aucks 15 + years ago, but at this shoot I hardly knew anyone. These kids were on 🔥 and really put 135 on the map, it def made me feel my age that’s for sure.
It’s good to know West Auckland is in safe hands 🔥🔥🔥

The first time I ever heard of ranuimarz was when Risera Crew were doing a performance at the Ihumātao reclamation festival March 2019, unfortunately I didn’t make it out to catch them but was lucky enough to see them 4 months later at the Ihumātao mass occupation. I was blown away by this kids performance, his confidence and energy. Hungry to be heard. He performed right after Dam Native. I remember in the crowd watching him were some heavy weights, Che’s dad Tigi was there, Hypa D, Andy from Dawn Raid, Poetik & Melodownz, just to name a few, shit was hella buzzy. After his performance I introduced myself and shot the bros portrait, he introduced me to his 2 brothers and thats when we clicked, we actually met way back in 2013 when he was just a youngin’ timdfilm and I were shooting a music video for the homie northcityrizzy feat spellspellspell we used his brother bryce_woebin’s apartment for the shoot, and who would’ve known that that was a young Ranuimarz in the making, sitting there watching us do our thing. Still blows my mind 🤯

Thanks for the connections brothers 🤜🏽🤛🏽 Life’s sure a buzz ✨⚡️✨

In a nutshell massage works via the nervous system. When we place our hands on the client, we stimulate mechanoreceptors in the skin. Impulses are generated, travel up the peripheral nerves to the brain. The brain processes it, sends out efferent responses, and that's what creates the changes. YOU are healing yourself, YOU are a sophisticated and intelligent body and I am the nurturing therapeutic therapist xxx ...

Waiting one more year to marry you is nothing when we have a lifetime to look forward to 😘 ⁠

Last night we announced the postponement of our wedding to May next year, a decision we made a couple of weeks ago. We are so thankful for our amazing vendors for being so understanding and flexible in this. They made the hard decision pain-free! ⁠

🍁Can you believe this gorgeous view is at the end of our road?! We took my camera and tripod down, and after 10 minutes, this is what we got! Gotta love an NZ autumn, and the opportunity to get out into nature 😍
