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. 


Staying at Enwood

The boarding house caters for up to 90 Year 7 to 13 students from all over the country, as well as international students. Located only a block from the school, Enwood Hostel is also convenient to Splash Palace (international sized swimming pool), Southland Stadium and Velodrome for netball, squash, basketball, volleyball and cycling, as well as the Southland Hockey Turf.

Short Term Stays

Boarding is also a great option for girls whose families live outside the city or whose parents travel frequently. If you are travelling overseas witthout your daughter or if someone in the family is unwell; or during exam time to avoid long commutes short term stays are welcomed. The grounds are safe, private and quiet, and provide a warm and comfortable home stay away from home.
