Every year the Board of Trustees has a student representative. It is her job to make sure that the students voice is heard so that decisions are made for the benefit of the whole school community. The student representative for 2020 is Johelonn Toroa-Taare.
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.
