Principal's Message

Inspiring young women who are successful learners and act with integrity.

He manu hiringa, he manu ariki, he manu rere ki te rangi

Palmerston North Girls’ High School provides an outstanding education for young women from Palmerston North, the wider Manawatu region and a range of overseas countries. We are committed to providing a safe and supportive environment that enables students to become independent, curious learners and future problem solvers. We maintain high standards of achievement and have high expectations of behaviour. Our results at all levels are outstanding and are consistently higher than national averages.

Our school provides a wide curriculum that includes a full range of subjects at all levels with an expectation that students will also be involved in extracurricular sporting, artistic and/or cultural activities. In addition, our school provides opportunities for students to be involved in extension opportunities to further their knowledge and skills.

Girls at all levels are encouraged to take up leadership roles. These opportunities help them develop greater self-confidence and become healthy risk takers within our supportive environment. Many of our students also gain significant scholarships to support further study at tertiary institutions.

“Girls’ schools are focused solely on girls – how they learn, how they play, how they develop friendships and what they need to be successful.” Trudy Hall. We invite you to take the opportunities we offer to visit our school and consider how we may form a learning partnership to achieve the best outcomes for your daughter’s future.
