At Mana College we are constantly looking at ways to make improvements for our students and our community.
In the last two years we have increased the choice of subjects for Junior College students. All students at years 9 and 10 now have a choice of two optional subjects and these now include languages and performing arts.
Our bilingual programme, "e tipu e rea" has also been strengthened. This programme is now taughtas a whanau class made up of year 9 and 10 students and seems to be a roaring success building learning around the tuakana/teina relationship. Currently we are considering how this solution could be applied to the options for all year 9 and 10 students. Essentially this would mean students would have almost twice as many subjects to choose from 2014.
