Makoura College believes that all students must be able to thrive regardless of differences. We embrace diversity as part of a richer learning environment. Makoura College welcomes all students ensuring that every member of our community feels valued and cared for. We support the needs and aspirations of all our rangatahi and their whānau.

Your child needs to feel confident, feel like they belong, enjoy school, have friends, have a say in what goes on for them and feel challenged at school. That they are proud of what they have learned and achieved. Makoura College knows that relationships are paramount to a successful time at school - this informs how we operate.

Makoura College is based on strong family and community relationships. We are proud to be an inclusive friendly school in which student wellbeing and positive connection are important and springboards to achievement.
