The purpose of ERO’s reviews is to give parents and the wider community assurance about the quality of education that schools provide and their children receive.
Excerpts from the report:
“Southland Girls’ High School continues to be a high performing school. Learning information shows that students achieve and progress very well at Southland Girls’ High School. Students benefit from a highly responsive and thoughtfully designed curriculum. Teachers and leaders have a relentless focus on all students making sufficient progress in their learning throughout their schooling. Leaders and teachers co-construct effective systems to support the commitment they and the trustees have of all students achieving well.”
“The school’s curriculum is learner-centred, future focused and enables students to be actively engaged in knowing and making decisions about their learning. It is designed to challenge all students, appropriate to their abilities. The school places equal focus on all year levels and learning areas. This helps leaders and teachers take collective responsibility for students’ learning and wellbeing and understand the broad context of student achievement. This is especially so in Years 7 to 10 when developing core skills needed for success.
The concepts of manaakitanga/caring and respectful relationships, whanaungatanga/positive relationships, ako/teaching and learning relationships and mahi tahi/collaborative relationships are integral as to how the school operates. Students demonstrate a sense of belonging in their school.“
