WELCOME TO MAHURANGI
Tēnā koutou katoa.
Welcome to Mahurangi College.
We are an incredibly warm and inclusive school. Expectations for behaviour, built upon genuine mutual respect between staff and students, are very high and are founded on manaakitanga and clear and consistent routines. Our ambitious and purposeful curriculum, grounded in powerful knowledge, is carefully sequenced to ensure all students are appropriately challenged. Explicit teaching ensures all students secure the basics, before moving to more creative and collaborative applications of learning, as delivered by our innovative STEAM programme. Authentic connections with our whenua are developing to ensure learning is grounded in our local environment.
Good manners are seen by our community as being really important, so we model and teach these to our students. Consequently, our culture is positive and respectful - students feel happy, safe and connected.
And we don’t wrap students in cotton wool. Rather, we build resilience via challenging experiences such as our stimulating camp programme and fun house events. Students grow to become well-rounded, talented and creative young adults who thrive at university, and are highly sought after by employers. Academic results continue to climb and are now comparable with the best schools in the country. As well, life-long friendships are developed and nurtured, and pride in the school continues to grow.
Welcome to ‘Our Place’.
At Our Place, Mahurangi College, we encourage, model and learn about a set of values that we believe are important for young people.
