Where Teaching and Learning Makes a Difference!

Welcome to Greytown School 2018

At Greytown School we believe that learning is about

  • Building children's self belief... "Anything is possible if I believe in it enough and am prepared to work hard to get there".
  • building strong relationships and creating a school family culture.
  • collaborative learning partnerships...learning and life is a team effort by children, teachers, staff, parents, whanau and our wider community.
  • achieving in all areas to the best of our ability whether that is in class or on the sports field.
  • being SHARP (being Safe, being Honest, learning to Achieve our potential, showing Respect and having Pride)
  • igniting new dreams and passions...learning and school life should be exciting and fun!
  • creating life time moments that children hold on to or look back with pride in the future.
  • giving children opportunities to lead in their learning and to lead others.

At Greytown School we strive to "Make a Difference" in ourselves, others, our environment and in our community.  

We have a long standing tradition since 1857 of high academic results and offering children a wide range of leadership, sporting and cultural opportunities in order to let all our children shine to the best of their ability.  We are a full primary for students from Years 1-8 and dras students from all around Greytown and surrounding local farming areas.
