Senior Assessment Week
Work Day - Every year we have a Work Day to provide things for students at Tauranga Girls’ College that normal school funding does not cover. To participate in Workday is to pay something forward into our school community and something back for facilities that currently benefit our school.
On 26 May 2017 we will celebrate Pink Shirt Day which aims to create schools and communities where all people feel safe, valued and respected regardless of age, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, or cultural background.
Choosing a girls' school...
because at a girls' schools, girls come first
At Tauranga Girls' College
All the leadership roles are filled by girls: from the captain of the volleyball team to the head of the student body; from the first trumpet in the symphonic band to the main part in the school play; and from all the council and house leaders to the leaders of every school club
Girls see (and are) strong female role models, and understand that they too can achieve successful outcomes from their own efforts
All activities are open to girls: they participate, influence and lead for genuine achievement
In an all-girl classroom, girls take on all the roles, providing an atmosphere where students take the risks necessary
Girls thrive and excel in collaborative teams
Teachers match their teaching to the way girls learn and develop their courses to suit girls’ needs
Girls are free to work through the challenges of adolescence without fear of embarrassment or harassment
Girls develop their relationships in a supportive environment
There is no obstacle preventing girls from exploring a career in any area
Girls’ achievements are celebrated
Girl-centred learning leaves no doubt as to who receives the teacher’s full attention, or who will be taking maths, science, and technology classes
There is a greater sense of connectedness - listening, helping and accepting others’ points of view
Girls in girls’ schools achieve significantly stronger academic results than any other group in New Zealand
‘A feature of the school is the wide range of opportunities and learning pathways available for
students both within and beyond the classroom' - latest ERO report
