Kia whai hua mō tō tātou hapori ākonga

Embracing opportunities for our community of learners.​


The colleges believe that co-location:

  • supports MBC and MGC working collaboratively on a single site, providing broad learning opportunities in a culturally inclusive environment;

  • honours Te Tiriti o Waitangi through authentic partnerships;

  • strengthens pathways by extending the opportunities for lifelong learning;

  • provides a holistic education and strengthens a sense of belonging within a safe and diverse environment;

  • embraces the concept of a hub working with the community to grow opportunity;

  • enables systems, structures and facilities to support personalised learning opportunities that meet the social, emotional, cultural and learning needs of every student;

  • values the past (history, culture and vision of both schools) while driving future-focused education;

  • recognises the commitment to collaboration - open and genuine communication and consultation between the schools and with their community, including other educational providers.
