Today parents face a multitude of modern day challenges in raising happy, well and resilient young people. Whilst there is a great deal of information available, this can often be confusing and overwhelming for parents looking for guidance.
SchoolTV addresses this as a new online resource designed to empower you as parents with credible and sound information with realistic, practical ongoing support strategies.

Mission Heights Junior College welcomes its new staff to our school for the 2020 year.
As advised in the media, the measles outbreak appears to be rapidly spreading in Auckland.
At this stage, we have NOT had any reported case of measles at the school.
1. If your child is showing symptoms of measles please keep them at home.
2. If your child has been diagnosed with measles please notify the school immediately and keep them at home.
3. We strongly advise you to immunise your child at the earliest possible opportunity – the vaccine is available free from your GP.
4. If there is a reported case at MHJC we may require proof of immunisation so please have your documentation available should this be the case.
Thanking you for your support.

In November 2019, it was decided to accept the Ministry’s offer to opt in to the donations scheme which means parents are no longer requested to pay an annual voluntary donation of $250. This will result in significant savings for parents as we are able to pass on some of the revenue to cover ID cards and printing, Yearbook, day-trips and outside speakers who visit the school to address the students. In the past, voluntary donations have been used for capital projects including ICT equipment, a policy we intend continuing. The Board has decided to opt into this scheme for 2021.
In terms of the Guidelines, a fee will be requested for the following:
- overnight trips (including the Year 7 Camp)
- optional DEEP courses and extra-curricular activities
- courses with a take home component including digital platforms
A device is also recommended for all students as much of our curriculum is delivered using digital technology which can be used at home or in school.
In order to maintain and enhance our high standards of innovative learning, additional resources are needed and as such, parents are requested to pay for the items listed below.

Mission Heights Junior College will be implementing a Holistic Student Report in 2019. Please find below a link that will take you to an annotated example of the ‘proposed’ MHJC Holistic Student Report.
The intention of this new report is to:
- Provide an easy to understand summary of the information about a student’s progress and achievement across the curriculum – the ‘whole person’.
- Provide information in ‘real time’ by way of a live report that can be viewed online 24/7.
- Provide a printed take-home copy of the Holistic Student Report at the end of each year.
We invite all families/parents/caregivers to participate in this consultation process be filling out the short survey on the link below;
If you have further questions or queries, feel free to contact Kate Lambert, Leader of Learning.
An appointment can also be organised – 09 2777881/ email@example.com
