Opportunities for our students to grow greatness through innovative, constantly evolving learning. T his year marked the 500th
...we need to challenge any thinking which reverts to dogma or blindly following a path simply because that is what we always do.

anniversary of an important historical event. It was the year when Martin Luther nailed the 95 theses to the door of a church in Germany triggering events which became known as the Reformation. While many of us are well acquainted with the life of Martin Luther King Jr, the leader of the Civil Rights Movement in the USA during the 1960s, it is interesting to note the impact and legacy of the person he was named after. Martin Luther changed Christianity by challenging the corruption and dogma of the Roman Catholic Church. He wanted the church to be purified and return to the original message of Jesus and to do that he advocated careful reading of the Bible. This view
threatened the existing order and Martin Luther was ostracised and often his life was in danger. His actions created the Protestant movement which moved away from the Catholic Church and today Christianity enjoys many different splinters from this key moment in history. Martin Luther challenged contemporary thinking and by so doing helped to rejuvenate a religion that had started to lose its way and had started to serve its leaders rather than its followers. In the same way we need to challenge any thinking which reverts to dogma or blindly following a path simply because that is what we always do. I am pleased at MHJC we have a well established tradition of challenging the old ways of doing
things. Innovation and constantly evolving are key words and phrases in our mission statement and remind us to question what we do and to never forget our students, who we serve. Paging through the first edition of Kia mana ake I am proud to be the leader of such a dynamic, talented and caring community. The pages are filled with the achievements and actions of our students who work so willingly with our dedicated staff. Students at MHJC are given so many opportunities to find and grow the greatness within them and I am always amazed at how well they rise to every challenge they face. Our graduates are as well equipped as any to successfully continue
their learning and life journey by striving for excellence and helping to develop a caring and collaborative environment wherever they go. I would like to thank the production team of Miss Kindley and Mrs Peterson who have done a wonderful job in preparing this Yearbook and the many contributors and sponsors who have brought it to life. May I also wish the entire MHJC community a blessed Christmas holiday and I look forward to seeing you all in 2018 for another great year! – Ian Morrison PRINCIPAL MISSION HEIGHTS JUNIOR COLLEGE
MHJC Board of Trustees 2017 has been another exemplary year for MHJC. As Chair, I am extremely proud of our school community and I know I speak on behalf of the whole Board. Our school continues to uphold its establishment ethos and vision of Growing Greatness, not only in the students but the entire school. MHJC continues to be a leading example nationwide of a modern 21st century school of engaged students. This century's modern learning pedagogy (style) ensures that MHJC remains at the forefront of teaching in New Zealand. Coupled with the huge range of opportunities available, this allows all our students the ability to demonstrate a vast array of skills and to be the best they can be.

Farewell and Thank you 2017 Student Executive Council Leaders “Great leaders have vision, courage, integrity, humility and focus along with the ability to plan strategically and catalyze cooperation amongst their team.” – Brian Tracy Our 2017 Student Executive Council judged on these qualities performed very well. The inaugural Student Leaders’ Convention they organised was the highlight of the year. The students worked as a team and successfully organised this event which was attended by Albany Junior High, Rototuna Junior High and Ormiston Junior College. We were impressed by their maturity in dealing with logistical problems and the manner in which they resolved these and other challenges. They delegated tasks and carried them out efficiently and with enthusiasm. President Theodore Roosevelt once said, “The best executive is one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done…” We can now confidently say we chose well and every member of the Executive Team executed their responsibilities in a manner that is in keeping with our values of Growing Greatness. Mr Morrison and Mr Naidoo
The Executive Council of 2017 are extremely grateful and privileged for the opportunities we had this year. We were able to implement programmes, attend conferences and organise school and wider community events. We have all developed as leaders and individuals, and have made many memories we will never forget. We have participated in various projects throughout the year. We held our own Student Leaders Convention with three other schools, branded each whanau with Te Reo and English labels, represented our school by attending and laying a wreath at the local ANZAC parade and some delegates attended the Hwa Chong Institution in Singapore for a Student Leaders Convention. Organising the school disco was one of the main highlights for our council this year. We required time management, creativity and financial literacy to ensure that the three discos all ran smoothly and efficiently. Each member of our council came with a different set of skills and developed them throughout the year. We all had our strengths and weaknesses which we worked on throughout our projects and events. Overall, none of this would have been possible without the endless support, guidance and management from Principal Morrison and Associate Principal Naidoo. At our weekly meetings we developed a strong relationship of trust and we thank and appreciate them immensely and hope we have lived up to their expectations. We wish next years Executive Council an exciting and a fun-filled year of many opportunities. We hope you all enjoy your journey and develop exceptional leadership skills. Being a part of this council is a privilege and we wish you all the best for your future endeavours. – Camryn Chetty and Jamini Patel, on behalf of the 2017 Student Executive Council.
– Cultural preservation – why is it dying? – Technological restraints – robots, jobs. – Humanising mental health. – Youth contribution and involvement. “It was extremely rewarding to take our learning from the global perspective [Singapore conference] to our own nation and develop thinking on relevant themes that some students may have never considered before. Everyone in the group contributed and everyone’s ideas were valued. I found it easier to work with focus having gained this broader experience. It gave me a greater appreciation for the perspective of others.” – Duncan Lane, Year 10. “It felt like the youth of New Zealand were all coming together, sharing ideas and collaborating on what it means to be a teen in this country. I felt very proud seeing my group presenting and knowing they had moved from thinking ‘surface level’ to thinking more critically about the topics.” – Leanne Te Boekhorst, Year 10.
Inspired by an international experience, our student leaders organised an event to get their peers talking about big issues. A recent international conference lit a spark for our young Mission Heights Junior College leaders. Members of the school’s student executive council travelled to Singapore earlier in the year to attend the 23rd Student Leaders Convention. They returned buzzing with ideas after exploring various topics ranging from cyber wellness, elitism and racial discrimination. The overarching theme of the conference was Amity – achieve as one. Students from Albany Junior High School, Ormiston Junior College in Flat Bush and Rototuna Junior High School from Hamilton, travelled to MHJC to work their way through five themes: – Education – critical thinking, relying on digital devices. • Cultural preservation – why is it dying?

INSPIRING OUR YOUNG WOMEN MHJC hosted the schools’ first Women’s Change Makers Breakfast in Term 3. The event was a sell-out and Assistant Principal and organiser, Kate Lambert, believes this is the first of many to come. “Our female students came away with many inspirational messages about the power of women and girls to be creators and change-makers.” Alexia Hilbertidou is the 18 year old CEO of Girl Boss and is passionate in encouraging girls to consider the opportunities the STEM courses offer in the sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics. Her key concerns are the lack of women in CEO roles globally and how the future of females in the workplace needs to ensure more women make it into growth areas. During the breakfast students were seated alongside invited table guests – all successful young women in careers of Publishing, Marketing, Agriculture, Design, Engineering, Infrastructure, Electronics and Bio Medicine.
Dr Pralene Maharaj’s story was very moving, when as a 26 year-old, part way through her medical studies, she contracted Guillain-Barre Syndrome, a rare and debilitating disease. Her journey to many achievements and her recovery was truly inspirational.
Christine Archer is a twotime Olympian, former New Zealand hockey player and coach, and an entertaining speaker. She shared her strong mantra of the four C’s: Courage, Commitment, Choice and Confidence – helping young women be the best they can be.
“This event was an amazing way to celebrate not only these inspiring women, but also our very own MHJC girls’ successes in STEM and other areas. Alexis told us there are more males named ‘John’ than there were females in high leadership positions – upsetting to hear. However, the positive energy and encouragement for women in the room, made me see that this statistic and the gender inequality in STEM, will no longer be a problem in the near future.” LIA ARROYO 10C2
“Thankyou for the great event. Helping with behind-the-scenes set up and catering made me realise this is the kind of career I would love to get into! “ MORGAN VALENTIN, 9M2
“The breakfast was so inspiring listening to women who accomplished so much by overcoming big challenges. It made me more aware of what can be done in my future life, that I too can accomplish and achieve my goals with drive and determination.” DANICA LIM CHONG 7M1
LADS & DADS SPECIAL GUEST:
Richie Barnett The Lads and Dads Breakfast, held in Term 2, was a huge success. Guest speaker and Rugby League star Richie Barnett, shared some heartfelt messages encouraging our young men to overcome adversity and succeed in life. The eventsâ€™ concept was very inclusive so that grandads, uncles, sports coaches, teachers or any significant male person in the students life were invited along if Dad wasnâ€™t able to attend. This new MHJC initiative allowed a quality bonding time between students, teachers, family members and mentors. With an overall sporting theme, students and their guests were encouraged to wear their favourite team shirts, coinciding with the June/July Lions Tour of New Zealand.
“Listening to the informative talk from the guest speaker Richie Barnett, I learned how important it is to keep trying and never give up.” – Devon Murdoch.
2017 was a year filled with triumph, resilience, hard work and dedication for Coast.
Term 1 was all about getting to know each other and ensuring that the new juniors fitted in comfortably. Camp was a chance to get to know the older students for Year 7s and bonding over similarities. Swimming sports was the first inter-whanau competition and with excellent participation, hard work and effort we were able to come second! We represented Oceania in our very own Mission Heights Cultural and food Festival! The day was filled with a large variety of food, fun activities and talented performers, many of whom were from Coast Whanau. As the main context for term one, students were all in involved with the outcome of the actual day in one way or another. Page 10
Safe School Week the whole whanau was actively involved in pink shirt day, spreading awareness about the importance of keeping the school community safe with many activities to get the students engaged. Another inter-whanau competition this year was the Can Drive for the Salvation Army. Our whanau collected a whopping 790 cans to donate! Around the World in 80 Days was the context for Term 2 with juniors focussing on digital citizenship and travelling around the world, celebrating their learning by a visit to Motat. The seniors looked deeper into human rights violations culminating in a NCEA social action project for Year 10 students. Term 3 was all about sports. AIMS is a major annual sporting event and many Coast Whanau students took part. They had the amazing chance to spend a week watching and playing the sports they enjoy. Students achieved some amazing things in Term 3 across all cornerstones.
Cross country, one of the biggest sporting events at our school, took place during this term. Although we didnâ€™t win, we learnt more about resilience, perseverance and determination. Me, myself and I was the context for Term 3, and this is when we looked more into career pathways.
Overall, this year was very successful in terms of achievements and growth as individuals. We all progressed and participated actively in Coast Whanau. A highlight for Coast was coming second in Athletics â€“ showing dedication, hard work and team effort to bring us back from previous competitions. Coast would like to thank all the teachers, parents and students for an awesome, fun-filled year where we learned a lot. We look forward to an even better year in 2018! â€“ Joanne, Camryn, Lia & Jamini
2017 has been an electric year in Forest Whanau! Students and teachers have worked together to create lots of special memories and successes for the Whanau. From swimming sports to the Salvation Army can drive, Forest has remained positive, resilient and supportive! Here are some of the highlights across the year groups: Unforgettable Camping Trips We reached Sonshine Ranch on a beautiful sunny day. It was a great bonding time for the Year 7s as our Year 10 leaders had accompanied us. For many, there was a lot of first time experiences and we worked as a team with the support of our leaders and teachers. We got to zipline through the trees; swing high into the sky on the rope swing and adventure with a friendly horse. The day was filled with laughter and fun! A few weeks later we visited Woodhill Tree Adventures. As we entered the driveway everyone stared in amazement â€“ this place had exceeded our expectations. Up high into the trees were different obstacles and we got to climb all day long. It was an awesome opportunity to go on these trips and something we will not forget! â€“ Rishita Rasela Y7
Visit to Mangere Marae In Term 3, Year 8s embarked on a trip to a local marae. As part of our visit, we tried out a variety of activities around the marae and see how the marae worked. This trip was part of our culture and it is important for us to learn more about our heritage. During the day we got to learn a Maori song as well as learning Maori games. We have been able to use the knowledge that we learnt on the day to create our own Maori games during Global Studies after our return from the marae. It was great to have this time together. It was a wonderful experience as a year group outside of the classroom! – Michaela Rohm Y8
Cultural Food Festival The Cultural Food Festival day at MHJC was a real blast. We celebrated different cultures from around the world – Indian, Maori, Japanese and more. Forest Whanau represented Asia and prior to the day, the whanau teachers and student helpers got together and started making food to sell and designing posters promoting our tasty treats. We made and sold money bags from Thailand, mango lassi and samosas from India and sushi from Japan. We saw many performances: the school’s Bollywood dance group, Chinese fan dancing, Irish dancing and hip hop. The best part of the day was seeing so many different cultures coming together, and Forest Whanau was able to celebrate at the end of the day when all our food sold out! We all worked well together as a team and built some long-lasting memories as a Whānau. – Pahul Kaur Y9 Gannet Colony and Surf’s Up! In Term 1 Year 10 Forest went to Muriwai Beach to surf and to visit the gannet colony. This trip was part of Global Studies and the trip opened our eyes to the scale of human impact on the environment, with rubbish scattered all throughout the gannet colony. The day helped us to form our own personal connections with the environment and for many this was a first time experience. The most exciting part of the day was heading out into the water for our surfing lesson. It was an experience we will never forget. In the water everyone had a blast with a shared goal of properly riding a wave. We all supported each other in the water, celebrating success together and congratulating those who were able to catch a wave. This trip gave us a great start to our last year at MHJC, strengthening friendships as well as sparking new friendships that have continued to blossom throughout the year. It was most definitely an experience we can all reminiscence about for years to come! –Samantha Aspden Y10
2017 WHANAU Year 7: We had several activities this year: a beach clean up and a visit to Sonshine Ranch. We also went white water rafting and it was great going down a strong current of water. What an adrenaline rush and so much fun! We also got to paddleboard or kayak and both were exciting. At the end of the day we were exhausted and were ready to go home and fall asleep. Year 8: This year we have achieved the GREAT learner qualities and been good citizens by not putting others down. We showed resilience by not giving up in cross-country and we are good enterprisers, aspirational and good thinkers by thinking of ways to bring our whanau closer. On the Spanish trip we learned how to dance, ate delicious burritos then competed in the Tough Guy Tough Gal course. Term one context was the cultural food festival – learning about different cultures and their food. Our trip to Mangere Mountain was to learn about volcanoes and how they were formed and how they play a role in New Zealand tourism. We’re looking forward to the surprises next year may hold. Year 9: A trip to a high ropes course and then on to the Parakai Hot Pools to bond with your class and do something you wouldn’t often get a chance to do, just like our context ”80 days around the world” sounds fun. Thin ropes, shaky platforms and tall trees. Battling mental barriers and facing our fears to end with a feeling of accomplishment.
It was all thrills and joy as M92 bonded by helping each other throughout the high ropes course but then relaxed at the Parakai hot pools helping the accelerte class to be comfortable with each other whilst facing our fears. Our term two context was “war and refugees”, 9M1 and 9M2 were put through their paces against a military course at Action Matakana. The goal of the course was to give every obstacle a go regardless of the difficulty. After swimming in icy cold water, drenched in mud we came out mentally stronger knowing you are only confined by the walls you build yourself. The day also consisted of leadership and team bonding activities. A lengthy rope spread across the shoulders of students fighting their way through obstacles showed how the use of communication and leadership can have drastic effects.
Duntion ne eossit aut es essitia quas dolore eos rerchil ilita volorunt litianiate omnis adia sed molorpos qui rem que nusae la voluptature
And of course there was a tug of war. At Matakana we were exposed to activities which we would never experience around Botany. Year 10: Year 10 have had many challenges and opportunities this year and it’s interesting to see how we’ve each dealt differently with these. Sir Edmund Hillary summed this up as “It’s not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves’’. A guest to the school, David Williams, spoke about his mental and physical challenge to climb from the sea to the highest mountain peak on each continent, which has involved him running a marathon every day for weeks at a time.One of our challenges was learning to support and encourage each other in activities that not everyone enjoys. By getting everyone to participate and to do their best, we managed to win the
school cross-country and quiz competitions. We’re beginning to think about our futures and have had opportunities to find out about the real world outside school. On our trip to Mindlab, we used technology to solve problems and work in teams - never an easy thing! We’re about to go on work experience for three days, which will get us thinking about tertiary courses, careers and what our individual strengths and skills are. It feels like we’ve come a long way from being little, timid Year 7s and we’re probably ready to be not so little, not so timid Year 11s at senior college.
2017 in Water has been an explosion of fun, hard work and opportunity – our Whanau excelled in sporting, cultural, academic and leadership through service activities. Water Whanu won the Cone Ball, Minute to Win It and Inter Whanau Athletics competitions. Year 7: Throughout the year we attended many EOTC trips – Piha Mill Camp, Maraetai Beach, Water Safety at Massey Pools, the Fo Guang Shan Temple and the Auckland War Memorial Museum for NZ Music Month. Our camp to Piha Beach was fantabulous as our Year 10 leaders stepped up to the challenge by supporting our beach games, Master Chef pancake competition, archery contest, bubble-dome soccer challenge and the hike to the Kitekite falls to search for longfin eels. On the final day of camp we visited ‘Vector Wero’ for White Water Rafting. We were split into groups and teamwork was the key to negotiating our rafts down the rapids. It wasn’t all hard work, as we also got to have lots of fun by jumping off our rafts into the manmade river! - Catherine Shipway & Jasmine Strong Year 8: In preparation for our Cultural Food Festival learning context we Page 16
travelled to Rotorua for an overnight experience where we enjoyed the Tamaki Maori Village encounter. We feasted at a traditional hangi buffet then visited the Skyline Luge and Gondola, followed by a visit to see the amazing animals at the Agrodome Centre. Inspired by our research, Water Whanau made a number of delicious traditional European dishes for the Festival, including Italian spaghetti bolognese and Spanish churros. The Mission Heights Science Fair saw some amazing Year 8 projects advance to the NIWA South Eastern Zone Science Fair competition. Two of our entries even won prize money! Anmol Singh Dhillon won a Travelwise award for creating a helmet to be worn with turbans. Aadi Golchha and Ricky Bassano won first place in the Year 7 to 13 ‘Technology and Innovations’ category.
As we near the conclusion of 2017 we are busy with preparations for our ‘Market Day’ where a range of quality handmade products will be on sale to the school. - Ricky Bassano & Jasper Carpenter Year 9 Water Whanau have had the privilege of engaging in many memorable, and educational adventures this year. Our Around the World in 80 Days context saw us travel to the beautiful Goat Island Marine Reserve for snorkelling. For the Your Voice, Your Choice - Elections context 11 students travelled to Wellington for guided tours of the parliamentary buildings and the Te Papa museum. The Get2Go event was another highlight, as we challenged other schools in a Brains and Brawn competition in events such as problem solving, kayaking, mountain biking and orienteering. Ashton Narayan and Aulia Suryo also volunteered at the NZ Breakers basketball events at Vector Arena (seen bottom right, with captain Mika Vukona). - Tanna Clegg & Chantelle Reynolds Year 10 Water feels fortunate to have enjoyed an unforgettable year. Piha Camp and White Water Rafting provided a GREAT kickstart to the year as we strengthened friendships and gained confidence to lead our junior buddies. In Term 3 we thoroughly enjoyed the chance to visit Rotorua as a part of our Careers Expo context (followed by a career’s OutBreak Family Evening and Year 10 Work
Experience). We rode the Skyline gondola and the Luge, the Zorb as well as a soak in the Polynesian Spa. Water Whanau believes in team spirit and doing the best you can - this has been our legacy as we have led the way to three inter-whanau titles this year. As sad as it is to be leaving MHJC, we look forward to observing other year levels from our Whanau sustain and achieve higher than we have already accomplished this year in our GREAT Whanau! - Maddison Taylor, Harneet Dhami & Bianca Langi

MHJC NEWS 2017
MHJC teachers aspired to greatness during 2017, gaining additional qualifications, participating in seminars and presenting at global forums.
Talented Teams Juliet Gao travelled to Beijing Language and Culture University after winning a 2017 study scholarship. She has also completed TPLT -Transforming Practice in Language Teaching this year, learning about language teaching pedagogies and how to implement Task Based Language Teaching into her classroom.
Schools with an Interest in Future Technologies In November, Deputy Principal Naddy Naidoo and Alex Jackman travelled to Shenton College, Perth to join Teachers from around the world for a technology conference themed: Digital Disruption. The forum was seen as a positive process, emphasising that digital devices are just one of the tools used to enhance learning. Schools experienced similar challenges using the same lexicon: collaboration, authentic, personalised and differentiated learning with all focussing more recently on STEM. The forum addressed key issues: – Harnessing Disruption via collaborative problem solving and challenge-based learning, hence the name Artificial Intelligence Revolution. – Cloud-based learning where global collaboration teams engage in problem solving; – Implementation of STEM into the curriculum; – Preparing students for the future with VUCA: Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous; – The SAMR Model enabling us to determine the effectiveness of technology; – Technology forces shaping Ed-Tech tools: Accessing, Sharing, Filtering and Tracking; Both Alex and Naddy agreed the forum was intensive and rewarding and found a strong sense all schools were moving in the same direction.
Aly Grant completed her first Marathon running the Auckland Full on October 29th (and has run 9 half marathons!). An amazing role model to her Physical Education and Health classes.
MATHS WEEK 2017 Mr Raj Sharma and Mrs Chandana Premdeep attended the biannual NZAMT Math conference, themed Back to the Future held in Christchurch. They took part in workshops and presentations by mathematicians from around the world.

Mrs Lal was awarded a Masters of Educational Leadership earlier this year. She has also gained a Graduate Diploma in TESSOL (Teaching English in Schools to Speakers of Other Languages.
The majority of MHJC’s teaching staff are now fully Google accredited. E-pedagogy Coordinator Mr Alex Jackman and Music Specialist (+ fast adaptor) Mr Ezra Bartlett have guided staff through the training modules, so that they may fully integrate Google tools into their innovative, collaborative, engaging and future focused learning programmes.
Staff recently enjoyed the opportunity to recognise three Mission Heights Junior College teachers who advanced from the ‘provisional’ to ‘fully registered’ teaching status. Pictured here are our talented graduates Ezra Bartlett, Sonia Lovemore and Rajesh Joshi, with Principal Ian Morrison.
What’s in Store for 2018? Year 7 and 8 students will have three sessions a week for a term where they can develop their coding skills. This is part of our new digital technology focus which will also include gaming for learning. Another three sessions will be allocated to technology where students will be able to apply their design skills in practical classes using food, plastic or wood materials. The exciting William Pike Challenge will be offered to our Year 9 students to test their resilience and develop a love for the outdoors.
Ms Catherine Hunter has been awarded the 2017 TravelWise Schools Lead Teacher of the Year award. Ms Hunter leads a host of TravelWise activities at the school to promote walking or wheeling to school, including annual Road Safety Week initiatives to increase safety in and around our school community.
We will be offering Year 10 students the opportunity to develop their “inquiry” skills during DEEP. These extension classes will enable students within the accelerate classes and any other students to compete in IPENZ and other external competitions.• The school is providing many opportunities for students to participate in the performing arts next year. Students in Year 7 & 8 will develop their musical skills by playing an instrument, as instrumental music becomes compulsory for junior students from 2018. Ms Abbi Shields and Mr Ezra Bartlett have already started preparations for MHJC’s 2018 Musical entitled, “Back to the 80’s!” The production celebrates the colourful 1980’s era of breakdancing, leg warmers, crop tops, mullets and pop music and features classic sing-along songs such as Bonnie Tyler’s Total Eclipse of the Heart, Kenny Loggins’ Footloose and Michael Jackson’s Man in the Mirror.

This year over 10,000 athletes took part in 21 sporting codes with MCJC participating in Badminton, Basketball, Cross Country, Football, Netball and Swimming. We had some good results across all codes and the standout performance went to our netball team, winning the B grade section of the 2017 tournament. Our school placed 32nd overall out of the 120 sports teams in our divisions, representing 275 schools throughout New Zealand, Tonga and the Cook Islands.
These are just some of the many highlights that happened this year. We would like to thank all the participants, as well as all the coaches, for making 2017 a GREAT sporting year at Mission Heights Junior College. Yours in sport,
Helgard Groenewald, Sports Co-ordinator and Laetitia Jansen Van Rensburg, Sports Assistant.

Special Guest: actor Te Kohe Tuhaka - born in Gisborne, inspired by his English teacher to try acting, hasn’t looked back since. He has starred in many movies including ‘The Deadlands’, ‘Mahana’ and ‘Sione’s Wedding’ (to name a few). He has also featured in stage productions, TV shows, and is now also involved in Producing and Directing.
A wonderful variety of contemporary and traditional performances showcased the beauty and pride of our Maori and Pasifika cultures. Mrs Reed led a team of very enthusiastic students and teachers and they all did an amazing job beautifying the theatre and hall.
