By Kimberley Gilbert

Hamilton Girls’ High School has shaped and influenced our young women since 1911. “Our core values and principles underpin a dynamic learning environment and our students are given every opportunity to aspire to excellence,” says Judith Lander of Hamilton Girls High School

“Our vision is that each young woman will aspire to achieve her personal best,” said Judith.

Hamilton Girls High School cater for the all round educational needs of our young women and offer an outstanding education pathway to ensure the best possible career destination.

“For our students to succeed to their full potential in life, they need to be able to make sound and well informed career decisions relating to their further education, training and employment,” says Judith

“It is our intention that through ongoing career guidance and career education programmes at Hamilton Girls' High School, our students will leave school prepared and knowledgeable about their future career opportunities,” says Judith.

Whilst at school the following experiences are available to them -

• STAR courses - short introductory courses in a range of career areas hosted by a variety of tertiary providers

• GATEWAY – work placement programme for Yr12 & 13 students, a chance to explore a career area with an in-depth work placement.

• WAIKATO TRADES ACADEMY – service sector courses hosted by Wintec

• Hamilton Girls High School motto is “A wise woman shapes her own destiny”.

“It is our aim to ensure that every girl who passes through our gate will be given the opportunity to shape her own destiny,” says Judith.
