Faith in our Students' Future
Our students are talented, hard-working and full of good ideas. We encourage and empower them to bring their ideas to life. Hands-on opportunities are what we’re all about.
More than a School
A SMALL SCHOOL BUT A BIG FAMILY
Dear Gaynstead Family,
I extend to you a very warm welcome to Gaynstead High School! It is a privilege for me to work with our students, staff, families and other stakeholders to make our school the very best it can be. Our aim is to create a safe, nurturing yet challenging environment that is built on positive relationships while developing the whole student – emotionally, socially and academically.
We provide an appealing and stimulating curriculum that is flexible and tailored to the needs of each student as we strive for high educational outcomes and personal bests for all of our students.
Our caring and passionate teachers ensure our students grow in confidence and develop the skills for the rapidly changing, 21st century living. Our mission statement reflects this commitment to “provide world class education through excellence in teaching and learning that ensures success for all while producing citizens who are integral in the development of the country.”
We want each of our students to leave school with the values of reverence for God, perseverance, respect, integrity, discipline, teamwork, commitment and excellence underpinning all that they do. Our students develop responsibility for their own behaviour and the choices they make, and also a communal responsibility to assist their peers to do the same.
Gaynstead High School is a friendly, vibrant, family-oriented school, whose decisions always put our students first. We are very keen to involve our community in our learning, developing true partnerships that value each student. There are many opportunities for parental and community involvement. We hope that through your participation and interest you will also come to feel very much a part of our school and its warm and generous community.
We look forward to meeting you soon.
Judine Thomas-Shorter Acting Principal
