Our Community

Community is the backbone of the school. Christchurch Girls’ High School | Te Kura o Hine Waiora is enriched by the strong sense of connectedness between school and community. Students, staff, parents/caregivers, and Old Girls all interact purposefully with the school. Links are deliberately forged with organisations, agencies, and businesses beyond the school grounds.

One of the many ways our community keeps informed about events is through the school newsletters. 

“Christchurch Girls’ High School | Te Kura o Hine Waiora is enriched by the strong sense of connectedness between school and community.”

Founded in 1877, Christchurch Girls’ High School | Te Kura o Hine Waiora benefits greatly from over 140 years of proud educational achievement. The second oldest single-sex girls’ school in New Zealand, Christchurch Girls’ High School | Te Kura o Hine Waiora is the largest girls’ high school in Christchurch and one of the most successful schools nationally.

The student body is drawn predominately from Christchurch but, because of the boarding element, students also come from across the South Island and the Chatham Islands. As a Decile 9 school, an enrolment scheme and zone have been in place since 2000.

PTA

The Christchurch Girls’ High School PTA would like to extend a very warm welcome to the school community.

The PTA is active in providing a link between staff, parents, and the Board of Trustees.

The PTA meets monthly (usually on the first Monday of the month) and it is a great time to meet other parents and get to know them.

We invite you to join us at our meetings and you can be assured of a very warm welcome.

Old Girls

Welcome to the Christchurch Girls’ High School Old Girls’ Association.

The CGHS Old Girls’ Association has a long and proud history. Founded in 1900 for ex-pupils and ex-teachers, the Old Girls’ Association was established just 23 years after CGHS | TKoHW itself.  Today, nearly 125 years later, the Association continues to play an important role in the life of Christchurch Girls’ High School | Te Kura o Hine Waiora.  

You can contact us at oga@cghs.school.nz. We are always thrilled to welcome and meet new members!
