Mana Wahine

Mana Wahine is the theme running through MGC’s pastoral curriculum.  We support and encourage young women attending MGC to develop into lifelong learners who are confident, creative, connected and actively involved. 

Mana Wahine demonstrate positive behaviour that enables learning and wellbeing for self and others.  Students can gain award points through demonstration of the expectations outlined below.

Below are the expectations that students and staff have agreed are important outside and inside the classroom.

Achievement - Tutukitanga 

Everyone is encouraged to achieve their personal best, through effort and persistence, and developing the capacity to learn independently (taking charge of your own learning)

Respect - Whakaute 

Through honesty, empathy, kindness and consideration for others, and celebration of diversity we build respectful relationships

Responsibility - Takohanga 

Personal accountability for learning and behaviour is promoted, encouraging everyone to make a positive contribution to our local and global community and our environment
