OUR CO-LOCATION PRINCIPLES
We believe that co-location:
supports MBC and MGC working collaboratively on a single site, providing broad learning opportunities in a culturally inclusive environment;
honours Te Tiriti o Waitangi through authentic partnerships;
strengthens pathways by extending the opportunities for lifelong learning;
provides a holistic education and strengthens a sense of belonging within a safe and diverse environment;
embraces the concept of a hub working with the community to grow opportunity;
enables systems, structures and facilities to support personalised learning opportunities that meet the social, emotional, cultural and learning needs of every student;
values the past (history, culture and vision of both schools) while driving future-focused education;
recognises the commitment to collaboration - open and genuine communication and consultation between the schools and with their community, including other educational providers.
Understanding and adapting to current, innovative and flexible teaching methods is important when planning and designing effective learning environments.
