Our Students

Governors Bay School is a full primary school with a rapidly growing roll, providing high quality education for learners in Years 1 through 8. Our students predominantly reside in the Lyttelton Harbour Basin.


We aim to develop students who:

●      Are literate, numerate and capable of learning through investigation and inquiry

●      Are well prepared for their transition to high-school

●      Recognise the need to be guardians of each other and their environment

●      Are open and sensitive to the needs, values and unique qualities of others

●      Have a well developed sense of self worth

●      Experience the benefits of being active citizens within their community

●      Begin to develop an understanding of how integrated and closely connected our world is

●      Experience what it is to be a creative thinker and have opportunities to share their creative ideas and innovations


Parents make a deliberate choice for their child to remain at Governors Bay School for Years 7 and 8 because of the broad range of opportunities available to every student.  We offer leadership roles for every Year 8 student, leadership learning for our Year 7 students and extension and enrichment opportunities in response to our students interests.
