Boarding at Enwood Hostel
Your home away from home
Our Mission Statement
We provide a safe and caring environment for girls, while nurturing and encouraging them to meet their full potential as individuals.
Ladies who lead
Enwood girls are known to excel. They are leaders across the school, sports teams and beyond. They have a grit and determination, formed through their tight friendships and unshakable work ethic learnt at Enwood Hostel.
The Southland Girls’ High School motto is “Not for school, but for life we are learning,” and Enwood House is the embodiment of this – teaching young women compassion, patience and practical life skills in a caring and secure environment.
Shine like a lighthouse
Enwood girls are encouraged to be seen as brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous, and grow to become independent young women showcasing respect, responsibility and integrity. Enwood Girls stand out in the crowd for all the right reasons.
