Nau mai ki te Kura Tuarua o Māwhera

Welcome to Greymouth High School

The heart of learning in our thriving community.

Welcome to Greymouth High School | Māwhera.




Principal’s Welcome

Tēnā koutou katoa. Nau mai haere mai ki te Kura Tuarua o Māwhera. Welcome to Greymouth High School.

I am very proud to join a school whose culture is welcoming and caring to all where all staff are energetically doing our best to give each of our diverse students the opportunities to succeed in their own way, We’re not perfect, and we always have to keep learning, but we are open to challenges and we tackle them with a “can do” attitude. I will continue to develop this culture and work hard with our staff to do so.

Our vision is to be The Heart of Learning in our Thriving Community. As the biggest school on the West Coast, with over 80% of this district’s rangatahi learning with us, we recognise that it is our responsibility to engage every student in learning for life. In this way, by giving each one a positive experience of learning, we should play a key role in our whole community thriving.

Whāia te iti kahurangi – strive for success

Noho ora mai
