In addition to academic development, boarding helps girls build their confidence, independence, social skills, cultural awareness, community spirit, respect for others, self-motivation, responsibility and a wide range of interests, in a way that no other experience can.
Timaru Girls’ High School daygirls and boarders are encouraged to become involved in either co-curricular sport, cultural or creative activities. There is always something going on in the boarding community.
The House offers support for girls to pursue their personal interests. During weekends boarding students can take part in a range of activities including trips to the city centre, films, theatre, ski trips (in winter), and games.
