We provide an outstanding education for
young women from Palmerston North, the wider Manawatū region and a range of
overseas countries. We have a very strong record in NCEA attainment and UE along
with many high performing, prominent alumni. We are also focused on being
innovative and responsive to the changing world our young people are moving
into, through offering strong pathways to a broad range of high value
opportunities and destinations to the world of work.
We provide 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. We provide a myriad of extension groups and social and ‘real world' learning opportunities for our students. We also provide learning support based on individual needs. Students 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.
We are very focused on knowing our learners and working alongside them to enable them to flourish. Our values are based on developing young people who are respectful, socially responsible and resilient - whakaute, whakatangata, whakamana. Our teachers are hardworking and passionate and we have been on a journey - which continues - of developing a learning community based on culturally responsive and relational kaupapa and philosophy.
