Welcome to Timaru Girls. We're all girls and that's the best! Academic excellence is very important, sport is big and so are cultural and service activities. The teachers are great - helpful, friendly and caring. The school is set in beautiful grounds with lots of mature trees. Timaru is a nice place - we're right on the coast so you see the sea every day and you also see the mountains everyday - it's really beautiful . You can choose from a wide variety of subjects and you get extra help if you need it. Have a look at our website - it's a great school.

Canterbury stretches from ocean to the Alps, and is a land of plains and peaks. It is a place of variety and innumerable attractions.

Within two hours of an international airport, you can ski, play golf, bungy jump, go whitewater rafting, mountain biking, wind surfing, whale watching, and visit world-class vineyards and gardens. Where else in the world can you do that?

A must-see is New Zealand’s highest peak, Aoraki Mount Cook. Go hiking in Arthur’s Pass National Park or just wander around the picturesque bays and villages of Banks Peninsula. And then there’s New Zealand's second-largest city, Christchurch known as 'The Garden City'.

Christchurch is a beautiful city where you can cycle alongside the river, stay in good hotels and indulge in fine sophisticated dining, and a city where, just 15 minutes from the centre, you can scramble up mountain bike tracks or ride a wave at a surf beach.
