Like Minded Learners

We value original thinking

At Grey Main School, children who are identified as having high academic abilities, leadership qualities and original thinking come together as a group of ‘Like Minded Learners’ or ‘Gifted and Talented’.  They are extended, challenged and encouraged in all endeavours to strive for excellence in their particular passions.  Expectations can be high and with that we nurture the resilience required to cope with all aspects on the ‘roller coaster’ of learning.  Seniors meet in the Tech Centre on Monday mornings 9 a.m. until 12.30 p.m. and Juniors Thursday mornings 9 a.m. until 10.40 a.m.

Creative children who display artistic flair meet on Monday afternoons in the Tech Centre as a Visual Arts Talented group.  Elite sports students are acknowledged and encouraged to participate in all school sports teams and events and also to join the variety of sports clubs within the Greymouth community.
