Welcome to Greymouth High School
I'm proud to introduce Greymouth High School. In the last few years, our whole community has worked together to create a school that is caring, inclusive and innovative. We're not perfect and we have a lot to keep learning, but we have learnt to be open about challenges and to tackle them with a "can-do" attitude.
We take our responsibilities seriously: we're the only school serving the entire Grey District and a vital link for young people between our fantastic primary schools and the exciting options of tertiary study or employment. We exist to help develop young people who can contribute positively to our society, which is reflected in our mission proudly prepared to drive our future. We also know that hard work is part of the journey, reflected in our motto Whaia te iti Kahurangi (Strive for Success).
At Greymouth High School, you will see our values in our students and staff:
Respect means we value ourselves; value other people and their differences; manaakitanga; value our work/mahi and the way we do things/kaupapa; that we value our environment at school and beyond.
Integrity means we value honesty and sincerity, being true to ourselves and doing what we say we will; it is shown in trust.
New thinking can improve our world. We face challenges, locally to globally, that require new ways to think and do.
Resilience means we learn to be strong in the face of challenge; that through enterprise and creativity, risk-taking and service, we learn self-confidence/pono.
Feel free to browse our website and, if there is anything we can do for you, come and see us or make contact.
