From Our Principal

Welcome to Christchurch Girls’ High School | Te Kura o Hine Waiora

“The life work and interests of my family encapsulate the touchstones which drive my view of the world and passion for future focused education. I see education as the most powerful agent for social transformation so that we leave our young people a planet to inherit which values equity, diversity and justice.

We inspire in them a sense of their own creativity and agency over their lives and we develop in them a commitment to develop a better world for all, in particular for those left at the margins of society.”
