Student Groups

Join in, have fun, meet new people

Extra Curricular

There are a wide range of extra curricular activities available to students at Green Bay High School. We recognise that opportunities to engage with these are important in supporting the development of a wide range of social and emotional skills for our students, as well as many of the key competencies in the New Zealand curriculum. In addition to students taking part in that which is offered by the school, students are encouraged to initiate activities if they feel there is a need that has not been met.

Student Groups and Opportunities

Student groups play an important role at Green Bay High School. They provide an opportunity for students to develop their own leadership capabilities, and allow a space for students to connect with peers, staff and the wider community. They offer a platform for student driven initiatives that ultimately support the Well Being of all members of the school community. If a student wishes to begin something new, there is a process that supports them to do so. Please contact Deputy Principal Elaine Webb for more information.
