Kia ora Students - this is the Student Hub page..
FROM MRS TAME:
Kia ora te whānau
I just wanted to message all GBHS students and say that your teachers have been working hard on preparing for Remote School on April 15th. We are even going to have an extra Teacher Only Day during the break on 8th April!
Please do not worry about your school work. As I have said previously, we will help you and things will be fine. It is important that you have a holiday from school over the next 2 weeks.
The one thing you MUST do is to stay in your bubble. To burst the bubble is to risk the lives of your friends and the people you love. It is really tough not to be able to see your friends in person, but you are experts at social media!
I will be back in touch with you at the end of the break. Do relax, stay home and stay in your bubble !
Ake ake kia kaha.
Kia ora GBHS rangatahi
I wish you and your families well over the next weeks.
I have heard that a few of you are worried about your school work; don't be! We will look after you. When the new term starts (April 15th) we will have more information for you about remote learning.
If you are concerned about anything, please email me, your teachers, or Abbey. Another great resource is the free text and phone counseling service:
Free call or text 1737 any time, 24 hours a day. You’ll get to talk to or text with a trained counsellor. This service is completely free.
If you want to try something different, check out this free website for learning chess! https://www.chesskid.com/
Finally take care, stay home and, by doing so, keep our community safe, and kia kaha.

We have set up Google Cloud Print - this allows you to print to our school Printers from any mobile device eg Chromebook, smartphone, tablet, laptop.
BYOD for Students
If you are interested in being able to use your own device online for learning then you must collect a BYOD Agreement from the office and get it signed. Connections are done on Mondays and Thursdays by Yvette and Bluey. Bring in your signed form, along with your device. If you have already connected a device we will probably have your form here.
Have a look at the BYOD and Wifi page for further information.
Microsoft Office 365 for Students - if you wish to have a copy of this installed on your own device for free please go to this site and register with your school email address. Note: You must be over 13 years of age. Please only install this if you think you need Microsoft Office on your own device. It is quite a big programme so it will take up room on your computer, and it will stop working when you leave our school. Here is a PDF with all the information.
We recommend using Google Apps for Education - but Office 365 is available for students who would like it.
