Welcome from the Principal

Kia ora tatou katoa

Morrinsville College is a state co-educational rural secondary school (decile 6) located in the heart of the Waikato, which has approximately 670 students.  It serves the town of Morrinsville and the surrounding Piako district which is largely an intensive dairy farming community.  The college is an integral part of the community and receives strong support from it. 

"Working together to provide a quality education in a caring environment" sums up our school vision. 

Morrinsville College offers a broad curriculum and subject choice to meet the needs of our diverse range of students.  Within this curriculum our students are academically challenged in a context of personalised learner-centred education.  Every effort is made to motivate students, and to promote a love for learning and positive attitudes about success, so that they can move successfully into life beyond school.

The school aims to produce confident, tolerant, connected, life-long learners who are actively involved in a balanced lifestyle, who can think quickly and work in teams, effectively manage a wide range of technological tools, manage themselves and understand their complex world, have mature conversations and feel equally comfortable, mixing, integrating and socialising with those who are younger or older than themselves or who are from other cultures.

Students at Morrinsville College hold strong CLEAR values.  This means that they:

  • Contribute, by participating in various school settings and in the community, by persevering, sharing ideas, asking questions, contributing creatively, being socially responsible and showing leadership
  • Listen, by being polite, following instructions, listening to others respectfully and accepting decisions made by others, including referees in sports
  • Engage, by following their passions, working hard and giving everything their best, arriving on time, engaging in all activities safely and demonstrating positive behaviour
  • Achieve, by setting ambitious goals, aiming for excellence, producing quality work, building positive relationships and celebrating successes
  • Respect, by being respectful to teachers, parents and community members, respecting the rights and cultures of others, conducting themselves in a way that everyone would be proud of, being courteous, being sensitive to the rights of others and encouraging others to achieve to their potential.

Our school motto states:  “Be of service to others and be truthful to yourself.  Mahia te pai ki te katoa me te whakapono hoki ki a koe ano”.  We very much look forward to your being part of our school community.
