Palmerston North Girls' High School

Secondary (Years 9-13, approx age 13-17)

Situated in the heart of NZ’s North Island region of Manawatu, Palmerston North Girls’ High School has an outstanding reputation for nurturing personal academic and co-curricular excellence since 1902. We enjoy the safety of a relatively small city with low crime rate. We live in a multicultural community with a dynamic diversity and representatives from all over the world that make up nearly 20% of the city’s population. International students are warmly welcomed and soon enfolded into our friendly community. With our ability to focus on gender-specific education that works for young women, students are encouraged to be entrepreneurial, to develop confidence and independence, and equipped to be successful future tertiary students, citizens and potential leaders of the world.

The Manawatu is heartland New Zealand. A landscape that sweeps from the sea to the Tararua Ranges, it offers an exciting range of adventure activities.

Choose from rafting, kayaking, blokarting, horse trekking, mountain biking, rock climbing and a host of other activities.

If you want to experience country life, it’s all around you. Go to a real stock auction. This is where the farmers buy and sell their farm animals, gathering around pens as the auctioneer rattles off bids. Stock auctions are one of New Zealand’s oldest traditions, dating back to the 1880s.

Or you could find a farmstay and meet farmers whose families have been on the land for generations.

There's a great diversity of attractions in Manawatu. In the vibrant student city of Palmerston North you can explore the world’s first museum devoted to rugby. If you’re a garden lover there are some fabulous public and private gardens to see, including one of the top rose gardens in the world. And a little way down the road around Horowhenua you’ll find such quirky attractions as an owl park, a farm devoted to Clydesdales and a fully operational Dutch windmill.
