Principal's Message

Principal Betty Romeo

As the very proud Principal of this academically selective state high school with a well-respected history of providing exceptional educational outcomes and opportunities for high potential learners since 1916, I warmly welcome you to the website of St George Girls High School. 

School Vision Statement

St George Girls High School is a supportive learning environment that empowers high potential learners to explore their talents and maximise their academic and personal growth within a culture of high expectations.

The school community values high impact teaching and collaborative practice to build the capacity of students to be self-regulated and reflective learners.

The school offers a broad curriculum and a range of experiences that create the opportunity for students to maximise academic and personal excellence in their identified talent domains. Students are supported to realise their potential and become self-regulated learners, through a process of reflection and evaluative thinking, within a well-defined school culture of high expectations and personal best.

The school community values collaborative practice to improve learning outcomes for every student through targeted high impact professional learning for staff to inform and enhance teaching practice, to effectively meet the needs of high potential learners.

St George Girls High School is committed to building a strong foundation across the school community where students, teachers and parents demonstrate a deep understanding of the needs of high potential learners and actively engage in supporting talent development to achieve high performance.

St George Girls High School has a strong commitment to create quality learning experiences and opportunities for all learners in a high performing learning environment that encourages and supports the development of healthy, happy, successful and engaged learners, while also ensuring that the cognitive, physical, social and emotional development of the students are nurtured and prioritised.

2021 commences a new cycle of school growth, improvement and renewal at St George Girls High School, as we launch into our 2021-2024 Strategic Improvement Plan (SIP). The school has engaged in a very comprehensive situational analysis to inform the thinking and the key initiatives that will underpin the important work we will complete together over the next 4 years. This work is documented in the 2021-2024 Strategic Improvement Plan (SIP). The school has narrowed its focus to 3 high impact strategic directions that are underpinned by the 3 domains of learning, teaching and leading of the School Excellence Framework (SEF) and this will engage and drive the work of our school community members. The SGGHS strategic directions for 2021-2024 are Student Growth and Attainment, Collaborative Practice and Building Capacity.

I am excited to lead our school confidently into its next phase of development and growth. I know that the energy we have invested to reflect on where we are as a school at the moment, where we want to be and by narrowing the focus for future improvement to the identified key themes of differentiation, formative assessment, explicit teaching, feedback and cultivating a high expectations culture, will ensure that we continue to deliver quality educational outcomes, experiences and opportunities for the high potential learners we have the privilege to serve each day.
