Mihi manahou ki a koutou
Warm greetings to you all.
Golden Bay High School (originally Takaka District High) has been a proud and integral part of our community for more than 150 years. Mindful of our vital role in the wellbeing of both our rural community as a whole and the individual students we serve, we believe every student has the right to an education with high-quality teaching, professional support and guidance. Our highly-qualified teachers are committed to the learning of every student and we endeavour to provide academic and co-curricular programmes which are developed around the students’ needs. Our vision focuses on creating a vibrant learning culture.
We pride ourselves on our students having a strong identity as learners, positive attitudes and a determination to make the most of the opportunities that our school offers. Our beautiful location and diverse community enable us to offer a wide range of sporting, outdoor recreational, artistic and cultural activities. Our students are warm, friendly and confident. They are passionate learners who show concern for others and for our environment (recently recognized as an Enviroschool).
There are countless opportunities for our students and staff at Golden Bay High School and together there are no boundaries to what we can achieve.
Me hikoi tahi tatou.
Let us journey together in the quest to achieve our goals.
Ake Ake Kia Kaha. Forever and ever be strong.
THE VISION OF GOLDEN BAY HIGH SCHOOL
