At Mission Heights Junior College we recognise that every child is a valuable individual and that within each child is a unique “grain of greatness” which it is our mission to grow. We expect great things of our students as they grow to be confident, active, reflective, high achieving independent learners.

Integral to learning at Mission Heights Junior College is the use of sustained innovative approaches within authentic, engaging and relevant learning contexts in our digitally intensive environment.
Authentic learning involves students researching, designing, planning, and creating solutions to real-life problems and teachers actively supporting and scaffolding engaging learning opportunities. Authentic learning allows students to explore real world topics, ideas, questions and curiosities, which ultimately helps them to become active in their learning and facilitate change. Technology plays a pivotal role in supporting authentic practice in our classrooms.
Learners have access to information, experts in their field of study and the power to present their work in engaging, effective ways. Learning that is authentic challenges us to rethink current assessment practices – particularly in regard to the key competencies, which are integral to authentic learning.
