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.

Congratulations to the three winners of our Values poster competition, run by our student Arts Council. The winners are: Lola Hartingale, Amalie Harris-Macready and Desana Strachan-Brown.
Golden Bay High School was extremely well represented at the Anzac Day service. Lily Cahusac and Maia Schinkel spoke extremely well, and Mihi Rangihika sang the two anthems superbly. Josh Scotland, India Tomlinson and Mea Gray also did a fine job as flag bearers.
We also held our school Anzac assembly with great student involvement.
The 2018 confirmed NCEA results have been released and I
include them for your information in this weeks Goldie found here.
The results are positive, without being startling. In particular, we are aiming to improve our endorsements and university entrance results in the next few years. Although most of our students are not aiming for university, we want every student to leave GBHS with as many ‘doors open’ as possible.
