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.
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.

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 some 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 to continue.
In terms of the Guidelines, overnight trips (including the Year 7 Camp), optional DEEP courses and extra-curricular activities will be charged in the usual way.
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.
Must be paid in full before the start of the academic year.

The Principal, Ian Morrison extends an invitation to parents on behalf of the Family and Friends Association, to meet he and members of the Family and Friends Association. This is an informal opportunity for us to discuss matters relating to the school’s vision, strategic goals and direction. The purpose would be for parents and principal to develop a shared understanding of these and other important factors which contribute to the school’s performance.
