Principal’s message

Our school community is very proud to showcase the diverse opportunities that Mackenzie College is able to offer

You will see from our website that we endeavour to make the most of our incredible location and the ease of access to mountains, rivers, lakes, ski fields, forests and farmlands. These natural resources and our proximity to the port city of Timaru enable us to provide our students with a vast range of real-life learning experiences.

Along with our achievements outside the classroom, our students currently enjoy outstanding academic success with some of the best NCEA results in the country. This academic success results from a combination of student effort and dedicated and skilled staff who have a close relationship with home.

We invite you to view our latest ERO report, which clearly states the confidence the Education Review Office has in the quality of education and pastoral care that Mackenzie College offers.

If you are looking at local secondary schools, then there is no need to look further. Mackenzie College is your school of choice.
