Geraldine High School students are friendly, polite, fun-loving and caring. They work hard to achieve their best in a wide range of subjects, and are stars in sport, music and performance.
Students enjoy a vast range of activities and opportunities, including outdoor education camps and field trips, academic competitions, annual school productions, sports exchanges and visiting speakers. We value our bi-cultural heritage, with kapa haka and a growing Maori student support network. And we ensure time for students to have plenty of fun in their learning and in their daily lives at school.
Our staff are highly qualified and experienced, with total commitment to the academic and personal achievements of all students. As members of this community, staff know the students and families well, and share their aspirations for the future.
Our school boasts fine facilities and resources, with well-appointed buildings set on nearly 5 hectares alongside the beautiful Waihi River. There are enormous fields for sport and enjoyment, surrounded by trees, and we have an Outdoor Pursuits Ropes Course at our backdoor. Not only this, but the mountains, lakes, rivers and cities of the central South Island are our playground.
Geraldine High School serves the children and families in this welcoming rural community with pride. We value close relationships with contributing primary schools, local businesses, and other educational facilities. Geraldine is surrounded by majestic mountains and nestled in the heart of Canterbury.
Central to all the adventure and excitement that the region has to offer and bounded by an abundance of stunning walks and biking tracks for all ages and fitness levels. During winter, snow enthusiasts will enjoy being in close proximity to the superb ski areas in the Canterbury region.
