Welcome to Glen Taylor School!


My name is Chris Herlihy and I am lucky enough to be the principal of Glen Taylor School. I have been here since April 2015.


I am born and bred in the Waikato.  I attended Waikato University where I gained a Diploma of Teaching and a Bachelor of Education.  I then moved to Auckland and was a Year 5/6 Teacher at Fruitvale School in West Auckland.  While I was working there I was lucky enough to win a Fulbright Scholarship where I got to do my Masters in Economics and Entreprenuership for Educators at the University of Delware in the USA.  I then got the job as Deputy Principal at Kelston Primary School before winning the job here at GTS.

The link to the meeting is:


A reminder to have your child or children working in a space where you can monitor what sites they are using.  This is a prime time for predators to be lurking.  All school links are secure and safe.

Have fun with your kids!  Don't forget to take them for a walk - but keep 2 metres away from people who do not live in your house!


A good idea is for Chromebooks to be placed on the kitchen table and switched off from 8pm to 8am.
