Nga Tamariki o Marawaewae – Our GVS Kids

At Greerton Village School we are represented by 8 Kids “GVS (Geeves) Kids”. Each GVS Kid has passions and interests across different Curriculum areas.

As well as curriculum areas, the “GVS Kids” also indicate the importance of cultural diversity within our school. Each GVS Kid represents a different culture in which our School is made up of.
