Welcome to Nelson College for Girls Preparatory School.
Our vision is that each girl becomes the best she can, that she is valued for her contribution to our school, and is a happy, confident, independent learner and thinker who will stand out in secondary school education and beyond. For this reason we closely adhere to our PRIDE values:
Personal excellence in all we do
Ko te tawhiti, whāia kia tata, ko te pae tata, whakamaua kia tina
Respect ourselves, each other and the environment
Mā te tuakana ka tōtika te teina, mā te teina ka tōtika te tuakana
Integrity and innovation
Whāia te mātauranga hei oranga mō koutou
Diversity - – celebration of a range of cultures
E koekoe te tui, e ketekete te kākā, e kūkū to kererū
Aroha mai, aroha atu
Our committed staff see our programme as a specialised two year pathway nurturing the girls to be prepared to become effective citizens, who will learn to challenge, to question and become involved, knowing that they have the right to inquire and the responsibility to care for themselves, humanity and their environment.
We look forward to welcoming your daughter and your family to Prep.
