At Southland Girls’ High School we aim to build a positive, caring environment where students feel valued and able to achieve to the best of their ability. Students are more successful in all aspects of their life when they feel safe and have a sense of belonging at school.
Students support each other through the various activities on offer at school, in the classroom, through the House system, and the Peer Support programme.
The Guidance Network aims to ensure that students feel safe and happy and develop positive relationships built on emotional resilience, resourcefulness and relationship building. Guidance staff include the school counsellors, the Careers Adviser and the Learning Support Co-ordinator who provide a professional service that is sensitive to the individual needs of students.
