Principal's Welcome


This an exciting time for all of us at Avonside Girls’ High School.

 Not only are we are preparing to relocate to a brand new, state-of-the-art campus for 2019, we are continuing to deliver specialist single -sex education that enables each of our girls to reach her potential.

 For nearly a hundred years, the words Summa Sequere or ‘seek the highest’, have graced our school crest. They hold special meaning for us.  For us they mean ensuring our school has the expertise and infrastructure to deliver a dynamic and evolving curriculum. They are about giving our girls an enormous variety of opportunities to lead and succeed.  They see us supporting and growing each Avonside girl to be her very best – whether she’s in the classroom, on a sports field, in a dance studio or on the stage.

 Above all, we strive to ensure that each and every one of our girls has a chosen future that is bright and rewarding.  Our strong tradition of excellence in educating girls for their future continues – we welcome those who want to be part of the next chapter in our Avonside story.

Yours sincerely

Sue Hume
