Our motto is “Growing greatness/Kia mana ake!”
Our vision is to grow greatness through innovative, constantly evolving, personalised learning.
Integrity - pono or how we manage ourselves. We are confident, honest, reliable, resilient, trustworthy, determined individuals.
Compassion - awhinatanga or how we relate to others. We are kind, caring, mindful, supportive, respectful, positive contributors.
Empowering learners - whakamana or a love for learning and understanding of how we learn best. We are collaborative, independent, curious, creative, innovative, reflective, critical thinkers.
Mission - To build a culture:
of inclusion where our differences are celebrated;
of collaboration where we support and share;
of community where we work together to make a difference.
We believe that learning is a journey, and that school, as a place of learning should encourage and inspire students to discover themselves, learn what forces shape the world around them and how they can find their purpose in life.
Self-discovery - to support and guide our students to look within (microscope) and discover their authentic selves, passion and purpose;
Exploration - to seek beyond self (telescope) on how to become active and positive contributors to their local and wider global community;
Authentic - to provide curriculum set in integrated contexts developed through co-construction and collaboration;
Self-efficacy - to articulate and share a common language of learning (Great Ako) so students will be active participants in the learning process (co-construction), know how to learn, how to assess their progress and identify what support they need;
Optimistic worldview - to share a positive vision of a future filled with challenges and opportunity;
Global citizens - to understand the challenges the world faces including environmental sustainability, climate and digital disruption;
Cultural inclusion - to embrace and celebrate our multi-cultural community, and be mindful of our obligations in terms of the Treaty of Waitangi and as citizens of New Zealand/Aotearoa and
Fulfilment - to learn to appreciate and celebrate beauty, nature, justice, truth and life’s possibilities

eBadge - 4 Cornerstone
Students participation across the 4 cornerstones are recognised through the awarding of eBadges on MHOL. In the award of a badge, it is usual for students to have contributed their own time, or for the activities involved to have occurred in addition to their school work. Students and Learning Advisors will track their 4 cornerstone participation through the eBadges awarded on MHOL.
Below is guidance on how students and Learning Advisors can follow up if they think an eBadge is missing.

The MHJC ePassport is a progressive set of activities and tasks designed to help students use the internet safely and competently. There are four areas of focus for the ePassport: cyber safety, digital organisation, digital capability, and digital citizenship / digital footprints. Each year the activities / requirements for each focus increase in complexity. Students start working on the Bronze level and should strive for Platinum level by the end of Year 10. Students will receive an e-Badge each time they successfully complete all the activities at Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum levels.
