Welcome to Mount Maunganui College

At Mount Maunganui College we have a clear view of what we want to achieve.

Our vision for Mount Maunganui College is to be a Student Centred Learning Organisation where our community recognises that this is a college where:

  • commitment to our students is paramount
  • every student has the right and the responsibility to achieve to their potential
  • every student knows that they matter to their teachers
  • diversity is appreciated and celebrated.

At Mount Maunganui College we believe the fundamental purpose of education is to increase young people’s resourcefulness to enable them to cope with life and reach their potential. Our motivation as educators is to develop our students’ character to allow them to become more resilient, resourceful, reflective and reciprocal, preparing them for a lifetime of change.

Our guiding proverb:

Whāia te iti kahurangi, ki te tūohu koe, me he maunga teitei. 
Pursue excellence – should you stumble, let it be to a lofty mountain.

All our academic, sporting and cultural pursuits are underpinned by and through our school mission statement Whāia te pono – Success with integrity. At Mount Maunganui College we believe how we learn is just as important as what we learn.

We are proud of our students, and the service we offer our community.

We invite you to share in our vision and become part of us.
