Educative Purpose

Our purpose is to develop young women who are independent learners with the skills and attributes to tackle existing and future challenges, to make our community, our nation and our world a better place. The school community works together to challenge and empower everyone to learn and achieve their personal best.


At Marlborough Girls’ College, we value –

Achievement | Tutukitanga – everyone is encouraged to achieve their personal best, through effort and persistence, and developing the capacity to learn independently (taking charge of your own learning).

Respect | Whakaute – through honesty, empathy, kindness and consideration for others, and celebration of diversity we build respectful relationships.

Responsibility | Takohanga – personal accountability for learning and behaviour is promoted, encouraging everyone to make a positive contribution to our local and global community and our environment.

School Motto:

Our school motto is Virtutem Doctrina Parat – Learning prepares for Life
