“Dominus Illuminatio Mea” – The Lord is my light (Psalm 27)

To educate each girl in a safe, supportive, Christian environment, to be a confident, lifelong learner.

Tēnā koe – Welcome

St John's Girls' School is an interdenominational Christian school and is steeped with wonderful traditions, strong values, and a warm family spirit. We are located in a park-like setting in the centre of Invercargill.

Our values are the important qualities we strive to live by and demonstrate in the way we go about our work, and in the relationships we have with others in our school.

St John’s was established in 1917 by the St John’s Anglican Church.  After the depression, when the Church could no longer support the school, a new school board was formed and St John’s Girls’ School became independent.  In 1990 St John’s became an integrated school, retaining its Christian base.

Over the years the school has grown and developed into a high-performing school well-known for its confident, articulate students who have a strong work ethic and who are well-rounded individuals. The small size means that every girl is known by everyone and is cared for. Pastoral care is important and our small class sizes are important to the well-being and education of our girls.

We are proud of St John’s Girls’ School and welcome the opportunity to share it with you. We invite you to visit us and see the school in action.
