PRINCIPAL'S INTRODUCTION

Dear Parents / Family / Whanau

Kia ora and welcome to our first school newsletter of 2017.
 
A warm welcome to our new students joining our college as well as to our returning students and to the parents, family and whanau who make up our school community. It is my privilege to be a part of this school and we are honored to be contributing to the academic journey of your daughter or son. I felt that it was important at the beginning of the year to share with you our core strategic aims and values in order that you have an understanding of what your child can expect from our college.
 
As a community of learners, Mount Maunganui College is deliberately working towards the achievement of our three key school strategic goals:
  1. Empower all learners to be confident, connected and to succeed with integrity;
  2. Form respectful relationships that are responsive to the needs of all; and, 

  3. Grow active learners who positively contribute to our society. 

Underpinning these goals are our school values, MANA.
 
MANAAKI
Respect, Generosity and Care for Self and Others

AROHA
Love, Compassion and Empathy for Others

Our school values provide a framework from which respectful relationships are nurtured, and therefore provide a foundation for meaningful and engaged learning which is our core purpose.
 
We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead and thank you for being a part of this journey.

Principal

CONGRATULATIONS ...

The college was honoured to have Simon Bridges present Leisa Renwick, Assistant Teacher Mathematics, a congratulatory trophy on behalf of the college for being awarded the Herald New Zealander of the Year (2016).

Well done Leisa from all the staff, students and whanau of Mount Maunganui College.

STUDENT SIGNING IN / OUT PROTOCOL

In order that students correctly sign in and out of Mount Maunganui College they are required to hand a note in to the Student Receptionist before leaving for an appointment or on their arrival back to school following an appointment. This will mean that a student's attendance data will be correctly updated and, in the case of an emergency, the school is made aware of the student's absence. Thank you in advance
