OUR SPECIAL ENVIRONMENT
Founded in 1877, Christchurch Girls’ High School is the second oldest girls’ school in New Zealand. The school has a proud heritage with strong traditions and a fi ne reputation for excellence in all areas. Among our Principals are Helen Connon, the first woman to graduate with Honours in the British Empire, and Mary Victoria Gibson who was among those who signed the petition which resulted in the enfranchisement of women in 1893. We place strong value on the ceremonies and traditions of the past. They are what have helped shape us.
