Welcome to 2013 at Avonside Girls' High School. 2012 was a very exciting year for Avonside Girls’ High School, as we re-established our school back on our home school site. We love our new layout, new specialist classrooms and are delighted once more to be able to provide an excellent learning environment for our students.
Our school has a long and proud history in our city and our ability to be able to continue this tradition, so quickly following the challenges the February 2011 earthquake, delights us.
Established over 80 years ago, our school has developed a broad and innovative curriculum, high academic standards and a wide, interesting range of co-curricular activities. Our highly qualified and experienced staff encourage girls to excel in a positive and focused learning environment.
As well as wide choice of subjects, support for learning and encouragement of high achievement within the classroom, there are many opportunities for leadership and for involvement beyond the classroom. Avonside students participate and enjoy success in a wide range of sporting and cultural endeavours. Within the school, our House system fosters involvement and a sense of belonging. Girls at all levels compete fiercely to win house points in all House activities! Opportunities for service and leadership exist at all levels of the school.
We expect our girls to take advantage of all the opportunities that the school offers. We enjoy working with each of them and challenging them to live out the school motto – summa sequere - by aspiring to be the very best that they can be in every aspect of their school life at Avonside Girls’ High School.
We look to the future of Avonside Girls’ High School with great confidence in the quality of the special girl-focused learning experiences we provide. We warmly invite you to be part of that future.
