Guidance Network

As part of our Hauora Programme, all learners are supported by a network of teachers and staff.  

Your Whānau teacher is your main go to person. Your Whānau teacher will monitor your overall progress, contact your family/whānau to talk about your wellbeing and help you make the most of the opportunities and connections here at MGC.  

Classroom teachers are responsible for the guidance of all learners in their particular subject class. Classroom teachers aim to maintain high behaviour management standards so that the classroom is conducive to learning and engaging. 

Your Year Level Dean is responsible for and has oversight of all matters relating to your year group. They work with a member of the Senior Leadership Team who have oversight of that year level (Head of Level). 

Our Careers Advisor is available to all learners and will assist you with career planning. Learners, parents/whānau and staff are able to refer leaners for an appointment.  

Our Guidance Teacher assists the Deans and Counsellors, with oversight of attendance, truancy and alternative education. They also liaise closely with the Curriculum Leader of Learning Support.

Our two Guidance Counsellors provide pastoral support to learners and staff throughout the academic year. 

The Head of Department for Guidance manages the Guidance Team of Deans, Guidance Teacher, Youth Worker and Guidance Secretary and co-ordinates their activities. They liaise with the Deputy Principal with oversight of guidance and the Principal. 

For advice on academic matters, teaching material and methods as well as behaviour issues within their department, please talk with the Curriculum Leader responsible for the subject area.
