Principal's Message

Your life is your journey - you alone live it and own it. It’s an adventure and we don’t know how it’s going to go, but we do know it will be challenging. Sometimes you’ll go it alone and sometimes you’ll need others with you.

At Makoura College, you’ll build your skills of becoming independent as well as working well with others. We’ll help you grow through the important teenage years.

We’ll support you and challenge you to move forward towards being the person you want to be.  You’ll be offered a wide range of experiences that will build your self-belief and your ability to think creatively and analytically.

Our purpose it to improve your understanding of the world around you and the world within you so that you can better deal with the questions and choices that are part of the journey.  Staff at our school know the importance of thinking carefully about what we are doing and how we are going - and working together to improve everyone’s capability.

Our journey is interesting and challenging for us, and we hope to share with you our commitment to learning and personal development.  Wherever your path leads you, the footprints you leave behind are as important as the steps ahead of you.

We welcome the opportunity to work with you as you advance into  your future and learn more about the rich possibilities that lie beyond.  Be assured that your time at Makoura College will be memorable and rewarding.
