Timaru Girls’ High School offers every girl a stable environment in which to develop and grow as an individual.
We provide each girl with the opportunity to discover and nurture her talents, accept responsibility and transform herself into a confident young woman who is equipped both personally and academically to face the future. Timaru Girls’ High School proudly maintains strong cultural traditions with an emphasis on self-motivation, high personal values, mutual respect and discipline.
These combine to provide girls with an experience that is not only enjoyable but which also fosters a true sense of self-worth. The educational framework in place at Timaru Girls’ High School begins with a broad based programme for junior girls, leading to a wide range of specialist study areas during their senior years.
Programmes are available to cater for the individual needs of girls at each level and to further expand their personal development in preparation for tertiary education or the work force. All the staff at Timaru Girls’ High School make it a priority to interact directly with our girls at every opportunity, maintaining that allimportant personal contact through the period that many regard as the most significant formative years of all. Girls from many different backgrounds and nationalities add a welcome diversity to life at Timaru Girls’ High School, providing their fellow students and staff with a valuable insight into, and an understanding of other cultures and societies.
The culture of our school is based on its long history and traditions which provide our girls with a sound base from which to take their first confident steps out into the wide world.
