“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

Tēnā koutou katoa

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.

Dance exam details and timetable

Dance Exams


[Yrs 3/4/8]  Tuesday 18 June
[Yrs 5/6/7]  Thursday 19 June 

Good morning. Dance exams are happening next week - below you will find details regarding hair, what to wear etc. We have also attached the exam timetable for your information. Please note that the exam timetable can not be changed.

Girls must have their hair in a French braid (1 or 2).  For $2.00 Miss Gina can do your daughter’s hair [please bring your hairbrush and hair ties - but as a courtesy to Miss Gina we request that her hair is washed the previous evening].

Girls to bring with them:
Dance shorts
Clean, plain white school socks
They may wear jazz shoes if they have these.

Navy leotards are provided.

Girls in the first exam group of each day need to be at school before 8.20am to prepare for a 9.00am start [we need 40 minutes for hair, uniform fittings and a run through of the work to ensure all the girls are feeling happy and confident going in].

Remember to bring your brightest smiles and good luck. 

Clashes - dance exams
13 Jun 2024

Good afternoon Parents and Caregivers

As you will be aware, next week at school is incredibly busy and the schedule has been meticulously worked through so that we can achieve all that is planned. 

Next week we have Swimming Sports, Dance exams, Speech exams, regular Monday afternoon swimming and a choir Sing Out zone rehearsal, offsite.

All of this falls in the same week due to availability of facilities, examiners etc. There wasn't a choice.

We've become aware that there are outside of school studio dance exams next week.  Unfortunately we have no wiggle room in the schedule. In order to allow our girls (many of whom are involved in all of the abovementioned events) to complete everything, we cannot move anything. A great deal of preparation has gone into making next week work. 

If your daughter is going to be absent for any of next week, please send your absence though to the office with as much notice as possible.

I apologise for any inconvenience but as you will appreciate, our job is to ensure the success of school events and the girls' achievements.

Nga mihi
