Timaru Girls' High School
We are a school of approximately 450 girls. The school has a boarding house right on the school site. Tradition is strong at our school and our school motto is "knowledge is power".
The girls are friendly, care about each other and welcome new girls to the school. Have a look at our vision and you’ll see what is important to us.
You name it, we’ve probably got it – sports, culture and service opportunities. Coaches from the community and teachers generally coach most activities. There are plenty of opportunities here and also leadership opportunities.
In the hostel you will get your own room. Of course there are rules so everyone is safe. The hostel is right on the school site so it is easy to walk to school (!) and there are services to help you get to sports practices, the bus station when you go home etc. You have to do homework in ‘prep’ each night.
Girls' High girls will be happy, motivated and well prepared for the future.
We value personal excellence for every girl, individual achievement, and creativity. We believe it is best achieved within a single sex environment where learning styles specific to girls are understood and best catered for.
