Welcome to Whanganui Girls’ College
Whanganui Girls’ College welcomes international students from all over the world. We have classes from Year 9 to Year 13, and also welcome adult students to day classes.
Whanganui Girls’ College has excellent schooling facilities and spacious grounds. Recently refurbished facilities include a mirrored performing arts studio, a gymnasium, the deepest swimming pool in Whanganui with the highest diving board and a technology facility with state of the art equipment. Our latest addition is an all-weather sports turf, ensuring our girls can practice their chosen sport all year round. Together with offering 20 sports, we also have a wide range of cultural activities and extracurricular academic opportunities.
We also provide a wide range of learning opportunities to extend the horizons of students to a broad range of subjects before senior level specialisation.
Ad Astra Hostel provides a home-away-from-home environment, assisting in the education and social development of all boarders. We provide safe and secure boarding with clear aims, firm guidelines and a warm, caring atmosphere. Hostel supervisors live on the premises and maintain close links with parents.
