Message from our Head Prefects
Head Girl: Rebecca Dorsey
Waitaki Girls’ has a strong foundation with community support within and out of school. The communities we belong to are essential for our growth as strong women, and our school makes it easy to connect people together through commonalities and differences.
Waitaki Girls’ High School has certainly helped me flourish as a student. If it wasn’t for the supportive teachers, extracurricular activities, and the atmosphere of an all-girls school, I do not believe I would have grown into who I am today.
A key part of the school programme is goal setting, and our Whanau teachers play a key role in encouraging us to do this. By setting goals I work harder and consistently apply myself throughout the year.
Waitaki Girls High School encourages us to be involved in many groups and activities. Even the smallest opportunity may allow you to meet new friends, develop new strengths, and improve your confidence.
Deputy Head Student: Renee Stenning
From the moment I first began at Waitaki Girls’ High School, I have felt a large sense of belonging and have been comfortable being myself. I value how caring the teachers are, and how each brings their own wealth of knowledge.
At Waitaki Girls’ High School, I have been taught the importance of respect, responsibility, and resilience. For me, this mantra is valuable both in and outside of school. I have taken every opportunity that comes my way, as you never know what you are capable of until you try. A quote that relates to my journey through high school from Nelson Mandela is “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it”. Whatever your goals are this year, in school or out of school, strive for your own success. Push your own limits, but most importantly be yourself.
