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.
International Student Testimonials:
"You will love the beautiful environment around Timaru. I have been to the lakes many times and tried kayaking, tramping and cycling. The outdoor life really suits me. The air is crisp and clean, no pollution here, you can’t imagine how nice it is. The girls at school are great, very friendly and interested in me and where I come from. I hope I can come back to Timaru one day."

"I love the school hostel and the Music room because I can practise piano there. Don’t worry about the new culture, language and how you will live – in the first few days you will probably get lost but people help you a lot, they are very kind. Life in Timaru can be very funny because sometimes people in shops do not understand you straight away so there are sometimes humourous misunderstandings!"
"Timaru Girls’ has big and beautiful school grounds with a lot of trees and flowers. I like the nature around me. I also really like the food in the cafeteria. We learn a lot of English in ESOL class which we have every day as well as our other subjects. My homestay life is very nice, especially my homestay mother, father and sister. They are very funny. When I am older I will remember the kiwi food because I love it, also my friends as they are very kind, funny and cute."
