Kia ora tatou katoa

E mihi nui, e mihi nui.

Kia ora koutou and a very warm welcome to Marlborough Girls’ College.

Young women at MGC are empowered to achieve personal and academic excellence through high quality learning. They do this with the support of highly committed and experienced teachers who believe that all young women can learn, achieve and contribute to our community.

We strive to create a caring, supportive and challenging environment based on our shared values of Mana Wahine: Responsibility, Achievement and Respect. Our restorative approach supports all members of our school community to reach their potential.

We have a clear vision for learning that is focused on the skills and competencies young women will need to succeed in their futures. Learning at MGC has purpose, is student centered and is pursued through authentic and relevant contexts. We believe in educating the whole person and learning includes a wide range of sporting, cultural, leadership and personal development opportunities.

The New Zealand Curriculum drives our teaching and learning, incorporates all learning areas and allows our students to gain the full range of NCEA qualifications and pathways. Emphasis is placed on the qualities inherent in self-management, a strong work ethic and personal responsibility. Participation is expected, endeavor celebrated, diversity respected and teamwork encouraged. MGC graduates are critical thinkers and empowered, life-long learners living in and embracing diverse communities.

We are very excited about the future development of our school’s new state of the art facilities alongside our partner school Marlborough Boys’ College, and look forward to sharing our progress with you.

We are very proud of Marlborough Girls’ College and our young women. It is our belief that strong relationships between all members of our school community lie at the heart of their success. We look forward to developing that relationship with you.
