Student Leadership

Student Leadership Groups

All students have opportunities to be a leader. Each year staff and students select a Head Prefect, two Deputy Head Prefects and a team of School Prefects. These students provide leadership and act as positive role models for other students.

Student View: Your school gave me a lot, taught me a lot. You provided me with an excellent education that I believe is second to none of the schools in New Zealand. I am very proud to come out of your school, I'm an enthusiastic Gisborne Girls' High School Old Girl.
