Wellbeing

Makoura College gives learners the knowledge, skills and experiences to succeed in life in ways that matter to them. When young people have a strong sense of wellbeing, they can engage meaningfully in learning.


At Makoura College, we believe your child has the right to a safe, healthy in a supportive learning environment, where they are accepted and respected, and an education that values their identity, language and culture.  


Restorative practice enhances a school-wide culture of mutual respect, care and support.  Positive relationships at all levels are integral to the success of the social and learning environments of our school.


A strong mentoring programme ensures every student has regular academic interviews to ensure their learning programme is on track to help them achieve their career goals. We work closely with each student and their whanau to ensure there is a strong connection between the subjects chosen, qualifications gained and their planned career pathway.
