Welcome to Mairehau High School
Mairehau High School is a school with a strong community focus where every student has the chance to shine. We pride ourselves on our innovative and caring staff, and value individuality and difference. Our small size means that teachers get to know all students as individuals and are committed to going the extra mile for all learners to help them reach their full potential. Our students are our priority.
FREE DENTAL CARE - SHARING STUDENT INFORMATION - PARENTS PLEASE READ
A letter is soon to be emailed to parents regarding access to free dental care available to all New Zealand teenagers. The letter requests your permission for the school to share student and caregiver information (personal and contact details) with the Canterbury District Health Board. If you DO NOT want us to share this information you must reply to the email and tell us that you want to OPT OUT by 22nd August. If you are happy for information to be shared - you don't have to reply. Please contact Ms Murphy (Deputy Principal) for further information.

The app syncs with our school events calendar, and the daily notices that can be checked by parents and students alike. Maps, term dates, sporting information and newsletters also have their own sections and are simple to access. In addition, one of the app icons will enable the user to link easily to our website, the Mairehau High School Facebook page, an app user guide, bus route information and media. We can also add links to events happening now, such as school interview bookings and fundraisers.
One of the most utilised sections is the portal. From here, parents and students can have up-to-the-minute information regarding achievement, attendance, timetable information and NCEA progress.
