The aim of technology in education is to encourage students to use a variety of means to adapt to practical problems in society.
It encourages risk taking, lateral and divergent thinking, the development of multiple solutions to problems, trial and error, teamwork, and the management of resources effectively and efficiently.
The Mathematics learning area offers a wide variety of Mathematics and Statistics programmes from Year 11 to Year 13. Each class is tailored to fit the needs of the students. At Year 12 and 13 there is the opportunity to begin to specialize by doing both Mathematics and Statistics in separate courses.

Within the Arts, Nga Toi, we aim to introduce and extend student interest and capability in the Arts .
Within languages, we aim to expand our students' understanding of the world around them. Languages are intertwined within cultures and the context of where they are used, developing with complex human identities.
By learning a language, students come to appreciate different cultures and learn new ways of thinking about, questioning, and interpreting the world and their place in it.
At Mairehau we currently offer Te Reo Māori from year 9-13.
