Activities Week Begins
Hostel girls Sapphire (left) and Jessica have plenty to smile about as Year 9 Activities Week begins at Timaru Girls High School. There promises to be plenty of activities too, from Xmas Decoration Making to Sailing to Quiz tornaments to Volleyball. A tradition at TGHS for many years and a great way to wind down from an hectic academic year. Below we have Carolin (left) and Lauren, both international student teachers doing an Intern posting at TGHS. Carolin from Germany has enjoyed her time with us and is looking forward to finishing her University studies early in the new year. Lauren from Australia has completed her Teaching degree and hopes to travel to Vancouver, Canada in February where she will work and hopefully get some snowboarding time too
Military Exercise Visits Timaru Girls
Today Timaru Girls High School students and staff were privileged to host the Joint International Military Exercise Group as they took time out from their very busy campaign to demonstrate the capabilities of their respective groups. Our girls and staff were very surprised and delighted at the complexity and sophistication of the weapons and medical operations on show and I am certain there may be quite a few of our girls thinking about a military career now.
