     Sitting on the scenic Otago Peninsula, Bayfield High School has earned a
     reputation for academic excellence. Since 1961, we have consistently achieved
     outstanding results in national examinations, with our students gaining access
     to prestigious universities around the world.

     We are a community-centred school and pride ourselves on offering a wide range of academic, cultural and
     sporting opportunities that challenge and engage each and every student. Focused on helping them to
     develop and reach their potential within a caring and supportive environment, the latest official Education
     Review Office report notes that students at Bayfield: “receive high quality pastoral care” and “value the care
                                                                                                                      Photo courtesy of Education New Zealand

     and attention school personnel provide in responding to their needs.”

     Another of our strengths is the field of performing and visual arts, with our school show an annual highlight,
     while our outdoor education curriculum is one of the strongest in Dunedin.

     The school has extensive playing fields, a new gymnasium, well-resourced classrooms with access to cutting-
     edge information technology equipment, programmes and free internet.

COLUMBA
     COLLEGE

     Columba College is one of New Zealand’s distinguished schools with a long-
     established tradition of academic excellence and outstanding all-round achievement.

     It is a church school that provides opportunities for personal development in co-curricular programmes
     which equip students to succeed in the world beyond school. Columba College is a day and boarding school
     for girls. International students also contribute cultural diversity and an international dimension to the school.

     Senior girls work towards academic qualifications that prepare them for tertiary education and their future
     careers. Columba College fosters courtesy and consideration for others as well as independence, self-
     discipline and responsibility. The family atmosphere of the school does much to create a sense of belonging
     and to engender a strong and loyal school spirit.

     For International students Columba provides an integrated approach with wrap around support. The girls
     are well looked after in either the Boarding House or Homestay; their welfare is monitored closely, and they
     are provided with all the same resources and learning opportunities as their domestic peers.

JOHN McGLASHAN
     COLLEGE

     John McGlashan College was founded in 1918 and successfully combines its rich
     heritage with an up-to-date educational philosophy. A main characteristic of this
     school is the warmth and vibrancy of its community life, where staff and students
     are friendly and inclusive, enthusiastic and hard-working.

     The school has an excellent reputation for academic achievement, and excels in the creative arts and sport.
     Our examination results demonstrate that the school is placed among the top schools in New Zealand and
     many of our students have won scholarships to national and international universities and gone on to
     careers in various professional fields.

     We are particularly proud of our learning centre and library, gymnasium and large sports field. Since the
     school is situated on the outskirts of Dunedin it is close to open countryside with beautiful views of the
     surrounding hills and its situation on the South Island’s East Coast provides many opportunities for outdoor
     experiences.

     As well as offering the full range of New Zealand qualifications, John McGlashan College is also an
     International Baccalaureate school. It is the only school in the South Island where boys can study this rigorous
     and highly regarded qualification, which is widely recognized around the world.

ST HILDA’S
     COLLEGIATE

     A leading New Zealand secondary school for girls, St Hilda’s Collegiate School
     is a modern, attractive institution situated in the heart of Dunedin.

     First opened in 1896, St Hilda’s is a positive, friendly environment where we encourage and celebrate
     excellence and individual achievement. Competition for places by New Zealand students is strong, attracted
     by St Hilda’s blend of the traditional and the innovative.

     Offering an impressive eLearning programme, it is our role to prepare students for their futures. One of
     the first schools in New Zealand to have a 1:1 laptop programme, we encourage active learning, teaching girls
     to use a range of digital tools.

     For international students, we provide specialised English language tuition, which is complemented with
     regular classes, where they work alongside our New Zealand students, building strong friendships and
     connections.

     St Hilda’s has a huge range of sporting and cultural activities on offer, whether at the highest levels of
     sporting competition or simply to enjoy the social side of sport. We also promote student involvement
     in the cultural realm, from dance to singing, acting to playing an instrument, celebrating and supporting
     the talents and passions of every student.
