Our School Vision: 2015-2017
St George Girls High School aims to create a supportive and inclusive environment where gifted and talented students are encouraged to explore their potential and achieve their personal best in all aspects of school life. Students will be challenged and engaged through authentic learning opportunities that inspire them to develop creativity, confidence and resilience to become independent and ethical life-long learners.
We offer a broad curriculum and a range of opportunities for all our girls to achieve excellence in academic, creative, social, cultural, sporting and community endeavours. We value collaborative learning, positive relationships and building capacity amongst our girls to effectively allow them to engage in the world of the future, where problem solving, evaluating, working in teams, communicating, creating and innovating are not only valued concepts, but expected skills, attributes and capabilities.
We support the individual wellbeing of our girls and provide a school environment that allows every student to thrive as they work towards achieving their personal best performance. We set high expectations for our girls and work hard to safeguard positive emotions across our school community. We are partners in learning with our students and seek to deepen their knowledge, provide enriching and innovative learning experiences, while also gently urging our girls out of their comfort zone to attempt new challenges.
We value relationships and connections with the community. We encourage our students to develop respectful relationships with their peers, teachers and the broader community. We instill in our girls a keen social conscience and the capacity to make ethical decisions. We work hard to develop and sustain productive partnerships and connections with our parents, local schools and businesses and leading tertiary institutions. We are proud to be a high performing school and aim to be the selective school of first choice for all families within our community.
Our students graduate from St George Girls High School with the skills, mind sets and qualities that will best equip them for success in the world of the future. Our girls are intelligent, resilient, creative, imaginative, disciplined, dedicated to life-long learning, respectful and ethical. They are the future leaders and role models of society.
