Congratulations on choosing your local high school. On Thursday 31 January, Year 9s and other newly enrolled students were warmly welcomed to Green Bay High School’s whanau during a special Powhiri ceremony under the guidance of Local Kaumatua Bill Tamariki. Students spent their first day becoming familiar with teachers and classrooms, as well as being introduced to our school’s online learning management system, Baynet and the use of Google Apps. On Friday 1 February our annual ‘Top Town’ event will take place – full of fun team building activities (be sure to bring your sunblock and plenty of water!) This is a great way for new students to get to know one another and to become familiar with teaching staff, as well as building confidence and team leadership skills.
