PRINCIPAL'S INTRODUCTION

Dear Parents / Family / Whanau
 
It is my pleasure to report back on two recent successful school events:
 
On Saturday 14 May our senior school ball was held at the ASB Arena. This was a wonderful occasion from start to finish and was enjoyed by students and staff alike. The following is a message I received from the security company charged with monitoring this event:
 
Well done Mount Maunganui College on a fantastic Senior Ball. You are a credit to the school. A pleasure to be involved with you.
The Aegis Team.
 
My sincere thanks and appreciation go to Ella Fairweather and Brendan Elder along with the Ball committee for their planning and organisation of this event. I would also like to acknowledge Mr Ady van der Beek for his oversight of the ball.
 
Secondly, our school cross country was held on May 19. All students who participated in this event appreciated the camaraderie and spirit of this event whether they ran or walked. Seventeen students were selected from our school to compete in the Bay of Plenty Cross Country Championships at Waipuna Park. My thanks go to Mr Terry Cochrane for his organisation and staff for their marshaling of this event.
 
Next week we will be issuing our senior reports on Thursday (2 June).  The junior reports will be issued on 23 June and will be supported by our second round of parent teacher interviews to be held on the evening of Wednesday 29 June from 4pm to 7pm and on Thursday 30 June from 10am to 3pm.

ROAD SAFETY

We would ask if you could please re-iterate with your student about road safety messages and specifically identifying and responding to traffic hazards. This is particularly pertinent for those students catching the bus on Hewletts Road and those students biking across Golf Road, Ranch Road and Waitui Grove. It is important that these students are aware of the other road users and their need to give way to vehicles and not simply expect that these vehicles will give way to them.

LEAVING SCHOOL

Students have been spoken to in assemblies about their requirement to remain at school for the duration of the school day. Students are not permitted to leave our school site at interval or lunchtime unless they have a legitimate reason such as a doctor’s appointment etc. In the case of an appointment, students must present a note signed by a parent or caregiver to the student office in order to be signed out.

WINTER UNIFORM

Please check that your child has a correct school jersey or jacket.  Non uniform items will not be allowed.
  • Year 9, Year 10, Year 11 and Year 13 and any new students to Mount Maunganui College - new uniform.  
  • Year 12 old school uniform.  If Year 12 need to purchase uniform then we would request that they purchase the new uniform.
Uniform items may be purchased from our approved supplier:

NZ Uniforms
371 Cameron Road
Tauranga
Phone:  985 6213
 
All foot wear must be plain black, polishable and below the ankle.  
Boots of any kind, coloured stitching, non-polishing shoes are not allowed.  
Roman sandals may be worn all year round.  
Shoes and regulation socks may be worn all year round.  

Socks
  • Boys to wear regulation socks available from NZ Uniforms
  • Girls - either black or white ankle socks or black opaque tights.

REPORTING A STUDENT'S ABSENCE

Student absences longer than three days must be notified in writing to the Principal by emailing
principal@mmc.school.nz any other absences can be reported by telephone 575 3096 ext 828 or emailing attendance@mmc.school.nz

It is important to remember the college’s requirement that students have a 90% justified attendance and 85% assessment completion record to graduate to the next level.  Because of the need to ensure validity in assessments, it may not be possible to reschedule assessments that may be missed during a student's absence.
