Principal's message

New Principal

MJ Lynch

Marlborough Girls' College are pleased to announce the appointment of our new Principal - Mary-Jeanne Lynch

 

Mary-Jeanne will start at the beginning of 2018 and joins us from Avonside Girls' High School where she has spent the last 15 years in senior leadership roles.  We are excited to have Mary-Jeanne joining us to lead our team into the future, and look forward to welcoming her next year. 

International Short Stay Groups

Marlborough Girls' College welcomes enquiries about short term group visits to our region.  Group visits can be anywhere from one week to five weeks.  

We are flexible and able to accommodate a range of options for any visiting group of international students - these may include:

  • Academic focus
  • Academic and Activity focus

All international students are placed in safe and supportive homestay environments which meet the requirements of the Code of Practice for Pastoral Care for International Students.  

For shorter stays of 1-2 weeks all students are matched up with a buddy during their visit and they attend classes together.  If individual students have particular areas of passion, we endeavour to match them to a buddy with similar interests.

For longer stays of up to 5 weeks, all students are provided with their own individualised timetable allowing full integration into the New Zealand secondary school experience.

Noel Leeming - BYOD Offer 2016

Please find below a Portal link for ordering a BYOD device through Noel Leeming should you wish to use this supplier.  Note the Portal is always active and prices will reflect the “best price” at the time of checking the Portal.

This link also provides options for accidental damage cover which, although adding a cost, may save some later costs. However, this is purely at the buyers discretion.

Currently the NL Blenheim store are hoping to have a partial area available for the Parents to collect and pay for their child's device if they choose the “pay in store on collection” option for delivery.  Collection will be from 1st December 2016. One of the Team will contact Parents if they are ready earlier.

Mana Wahine

Mana Wahine is the theme running through MGC’s pastoral curriculum.  We support and encourage young women attending MGC to develop into lifelong learners who are confident, creative, connected and actively involved. 

PB4L (Positive Behaviour for learning) is the framework used by schools to develop initiatives that “support students to improve their behaviour, resilience and wellbeing”.  These initiatives help to create more positive home and school environments and deter bullying.  Mana Wahine has been developed out of this framework.

Mana Wahine demonstrate positive behaviour that enables learning and wellbeing for self and others.  Students can gain award points through demonstration of the expectations outlined below.

Below are the expectations that students and staff have agreed are important outside and inside the classroom.

Respect - Manaakitanga

  • Use polite and appropriate language
  • Be kind and considerate
  • Care for the environment

Achievement – Tutukitanga

  • Take ownership for your learning
  • Attend and participate
  • Give your best effort

Responsibility – Takohanga

  • Be prepared and punctual
  • Take pride in your appearance
  • Allow others to learn
  • Use devices appropriately
