Entry Testing

Entry tests are held for all Year 8 students who have been offered a place at Palmerston North Girls’ High School.  Please note that due to Covid Level 2 restrictions some changes have been made to the times initially advertised on the PNGHS website for entrance testing. 

Year 8 students who are completing entrance testing meet at the front doors of the Huia Centre at PNGHS at the beginning of the session.

Bring a pen (or pencil) a drink and snack.

To allow PNGHS to comply with Covid Level 2 restrictions we ask that parents pick up (or drop off) their students from the gate in front of the Huia Centre and not to enter the grounds.  If your child needs additional support or special conditions for entrance testing please contact Mrs Andrews at s.andrews@pnghs.school.nz
