Thank you for your interest in Grey High. Enrolling your child here means you are placing your trust in us and we take that responsibility very seriously. During teenage times there are many opportunities and challenges – the partnership between school and whānau is key in getting the best outcome for your child.
If you’d like to speak with someone for help with the enrolment process, please email email@example.com or call 0800 GREYHIGH and ask to speak to Kiri Russell, our Kaitakawaenga / School-Home Partnership Promoter.
Toki Pounamu / E-Learning
Greymouth High School partners with most of our contributing primary schools in a commitment to using technology to be at the leading edge of education. This means we have agreed on some common ways we teach and your child learns, which helps your child gain a consistent experience from primary through secondary school. It also means we run a trust to support access to a computer for each student for school use – the trust is non-profit making and enables you to spread payments to a small weekly amount over three years, without interest and including insurance and extended warranty.
We have chosen to all use Chromebooks: we also all use the same ICT support (a company called Fusion). This makes the computer itself like a uniform item (no competition) and gives you consistency.
If your child’s Chromebook gets damaged or stops working properly, it can be brought to the library and will be replaced with a loan Chromebook while it is assessed and repaired. We expect loan computers to be treated with care and respect and returned when requested.
