DEEP Programme

Each student at Mission Heights Junior College has a Learning Advisor. This teacher, usually from their whanau, meets with each student individually to assess their progress and set goals based on evidence of their learning.

Our school timetable includes a daily extension and enrichment ‘DEEP’ learning session; Discovery, Essentials, Enrichment and Passions.

Students, with their advisor, create a personalised DEEP programme according to their needs, interests and passions. Our DEEP session also allows for;

  • Enrichment in new curriculum areas or in areas of existing strength
  • Preparation for academic competitions
  • Sessions for students who are finding an aspect of the curriculum challenging
  • Opportunities to extend and enrich able students
  • An induction to MHJC life for students arriving during the course of the year

Where students are identified as having a specific need in numeracy, literacy or ESOL, they are directed to an Essential DEEP option to address this need.
