OneSchool Global on the West Coast is unique in that it is comprised of two campuses: one in Greymouth and one in Westport. While there is just over 100 kilometres separating the two campuses, the community is strong. Students from Westport travel to Greymouth twice a week and Greymouth students travel to Westport twice a week on a road that has been rated one of the top ten drives in the world.
Greymouth Campus is situated in a rural setting at Kaiata and is a very picturesque spot with an outlook to the hills and the Tranz Alpine train which runs along the track just below the campus.
Both campuses share beautiful Learning Centres which offer a variety of study areas as the year 9-13 students engage in self-directed learning. Because of the relatively small number of students on the West Coast, all the classes in the Senior School are held via Zoom with specialist teachers located throughout New Zealand. The Junior School has face-to-face teachers on each campus and those in years 7 and 8 have a live wall with a teacher located off-site working collaboratively with a teacher on-site.
Cutting edge technology plays an important role at OneSchool Global, allowing teachers to work closely with each student to meet their individual learning needs as they build 21st-century skills as self-directed learners
Both Westport and Greymouth Campuses have a playing field and courts where the students can play games at morning break and lunchtimes.
“We are a caring school where students enjoy the experience but at the same time we set high expectations. We believe in creating a culture whereby students can learn to be successful, self-directed learners.”
Opportunities also exist for teachers who are interested in taking up the challenge of teaching by video conferencing either full or part time in their area of expertise. The success of every school largely hinges on the co-operation, communication and cohesion of all its members and Greymouth Campus boasts a large number of voluntary support personnel, in the form of librarians, canteen workers, bus drivers, caretakers and teacher aides.
At our School, students are encouraged to develop their full potential and acquire the discipline of ‘learning how to learn’, while upholding fundamental Christian teachings and beliefs, especially those of purity, integrity and godliness. The truth and authority of the Holy Bible and strong family values underpin the commitment of the School to provide quality in every facet of education – curriculum, teachers, facilities, management and discipline – in a safe, secure and caring environment.
