GHS celebrates its successes
There was great excitement when the school moved to its beautiful new premises in Frost Street in 1918.
The school building has subsequently been extended, but the original character has been retained and the building is now surrounded by two girls’ hostels and spacious sports facilities which make up a convenient and beautiful campus.
In January 1991, formerly “whites only” schools were given the choice of enrolling pupils from other racial groups.
Girls’ High seized the opportunity and became one of the pioneers of multiracial schooling.
Today, Queenstown Girls’ High pupils still benefit from “the very best education possible”.
The high ideals espoused by the school are expressed in its Statement of Commitment.
This weekend, the iconic institution celebrates its 147th birthday with an exciting programme including a cultural show, a birthday service, sport and get-together events at various venues.
