Te Kāreti Kōtiro o Whanganui

Whanganui Girls’ College develops the skills students need to build the businesses, careers and communities of the future.

Tēnā koutou Whānau and Parents,
I would like to extend an invitation to you to attend the blessing and consecration of our school atua on Monday 30th of May at 7am, to prepare for the building of our Wharenui which will start on 1st of June. This blessing and laying of the Mouri Stone will be conducted by our Kaumatua, John Maihi. We would like our ākonga and their whānau and families to be a part of the celebration.
After the blessing, we will have our celebration of Puanga rising followed by breakfast. There will be karakia, waiata, and kai for us all to share together.
We look forward to you joining us and being a part of this event. Please note, that we require visitors to our kura to wear masks for your safety and ours.
Ngā mihi nui

Our School

Recognising the challenges awaiting young women in the 21st century, the school develops the skills students need to build the businesses, careers and communities of the future.

The school provides a physical, social and intellectual environment which promotes achievement and personal growth. The mottos ‘Ad Astra’ and ‘Poutamatia’ are words of encouragement to our students to ‘aim high’ and strive for excellence in everything they do.

“WGC offers opportunities for you to be able to nourish, explore and reach your full potential.”
