It is my personal desire to see girls “shine like lighthouses”, says the Director of Boarding at Southland Girls’ High School.  They should not fear being seen as brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous. 

Girls at Enwood House feel liberated to succeed; they become increasingly wise and independent young women with core values of respect, responsibility and integrity.  All people at Enwood House are accepted for their diversity of beliefs and opinions and are encouraged to take responsibility for the care of themselves, others, the community and the environment.  Inherent in hostel life is the value of long lasting friendships formed with tolerance and compassion. 

With these values you can see why our motto is “Enwood Girls Stand Out In The Crowd - For All The Right Reasons”.


We provide a safe and caring environment for girls, while nurturing and
encouraging them to meet their full potential as individuals.



Short Term Stays

If you are travelling overseas and want somewhere safe for your daughter to stay and attend school, if someone in the family is unwell, or over exam time, we welcome Short Term Stays.
