Our school's Green-Gold recognition showcases how sustainability is woven into our daily life and decision-making.

Experience the powerful connection our students have with the environment, leading impactful actions and measurable changes.
​​​​​​​

The PNGHS Sports Department is committed to fostering and encouraging participation and excellence in sport.

There is a wide range of sporting opportunities where students are able to participate in a competitive or social environment.
​​​​​​​

Commencing at Year 9 with a broad foundation across all eight learning areas of the New Zealand Curriculum, our subject choices become increasingly specialised over successive years.
​​​​​​​

Students are able to participate and compete in activities such as debating, instrumental ensembles and choral groups, Kapa Haka, the annual Rock da House talent quest, school productions, cultural dance groups, wearable arts, writing, art exhibitions, speechmaking, media and much more.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

Each year, we celebrate the diversity at Palmerston North Girls’ High School by admitting a number of international students where every one is supported and treated as individuals.

Our aim is to develop their confidence as well as giving them a strong sense of belonging.

We welcome you to join us and explore for yourself, the opportunities awaiting you at Palmerston North Girls' High School.
