At Golden Bay High School students prepare for the future by learning skills and knowledge, and developing the personal resources that are needed to live satisfying, balanced and responsible lives.
We cater for all students, whatever their needs. Part of our philosophy is to take into account the interests and abilities of each student. We devise individual programmes to support maximum learning where necessary.
Please contact us if you need any further assistance - we would love to hear from you.

This will be the final Goldie for 2022.
Thank you so much for all of your support of your students and our school. It hasn’t been an easy year, but we have all worked our very hardest to do our best for our students.
We have had two great celebrations. Margie Little’s poroaki was held on Sunday 4th, and Senior Prize giving on Monday 5th.
The two separate junior celebrations are being held on Tuesday 13th.
2023 Student Executive
At the senior prizegiving I announced the 2023 Year 13 Executive:
Head students: Hinewai Lewis & Malakai Thorpe
Executive members: Rosie Brown, Kiki Dixon, Jodi Jefferson, & Molly O’Connor
We are really looking forward to working with these leaders, house leaders and others who take on leadership roles to make 2023 a very special year. We want 2023 to be a year of a lot of fun, as well as a year of lots of effective learning!
School site over the break
There will be extensive trenching over the break. It will not be possible to walk through the school past admin and the library.
Access to the pool will be via the gym driveway or across the field and through the astro turf.
The Police have asked me to remind the community that our school grounds are out of bounds at night. They have told us they will be increasing patrols.
Last chance for pool keys
The last meeting will be held on Monday 12th at 7pm in the school library.
My best wishes for a relaxing festive season, and I hope all are able to take some form of break.
