This Saturday! 9.30am – 2.00pm. All Welcome.

Confident and Proud of our success…

At Green Bay High School we deliver excellent results through well designed, dynamic pathways for our students. We are a school where learning is student driven and positive relationships are the foundation of the learning process. Green Bay High School is a vibrant and friendly school, blending traditional and e-learning approaches to create a school environment for the 21st century.

Our roll has more than doubled to around 1350 students because there is:

  • A clear, strong vision shared by an effective Board and Senior Leadership Team that learning should be individualised, innovative and connected.
  • A team of expert teaching professionals, enthusiastically embracing the latest professional learning and development.
  • Strong promotion of a school culture that values positive relationships as an essential element of effective learning.
  • Imaginative use of NCEA: traditional learning pathways sit alongside innovative curriculum initiatives with Academic Counselling, where personalised learning is prioritised over ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach.
  • Major investment in upgrading ICT cabling and network system; carefully developed blended e-learning plan with “Bring Your Own Device” strategy.
  • Responsiveness to, and support from, our local community: active engagement with families, local contributing schools and community groups.
  • Active involvement with, and leadership of, our local Community of Learning - Kōtuitui Network.
  • Multi-million dollar property upgrade: Sports/PE facilities completed 2015-2017; 2014 total refurbishment of Mathematics block into a modern learning environment; 2013 the new Languages and International Education facility opened: and these match the new buildings and renovations related to Technology, Science, Arts, Administration and Student Services and the Performing Arts Centre.
  • Exciting growth in sport: focus on quality experiences for both elite athletes (JETS programme) and those who just love engagement in competitive sports.
  • Huge opportunities to participate in performance and cultural activities; experienced, creative and innovative teachers; many international exchanges and travel programmes.
  • Strong student leadership development through broadly scoped teams driving School Spirit (Houses), Social Awareness and Student Support – helping to create the leaders of the future.

Our continued strong focus on meeting the needs, aspirations and interests of our community and its young people underpins everything that we do.

PLEASE NOTE: Significant roll growth in recent years has meant the Board of Trustees is required to have an enrolment zone by the Ministry of Education. See our website for enrolment details.
