    Choosing a school for your daughter is an important decision. It would help if you reflected on all you know about your daughter and what you want for her and then find out as much as you can about the school you are considering. We hope our website will be useful for you in this. A right school celebrates its past, enjoys its present, and imagines its future, but a genuinely outstanding school challenges the students to be actively involved in all three of these things for themselves. This is what we do at St Hilda's.

    Regarding the past, our girls know that they stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before them. Unique school traditions are enjoyed, and the direction of our school leaders is respected and valued. Our school motto, Non-Nobis Solum, is an integral part of our heritage and shapes who we are. It inspires each girl to look out for the needs of others by exercising maturity and empathy. In this way, our core values of love, compassion, forgiveness, hope, and grace are called upon and become dynamic realities.

    St Hilda's girls certainly know how to enjoy the present. If you visit the school, you will sense our friendly and lively community in action. There are much warmth and joy in our school setting and our boarding houses. Our girls play sport with enthusiasm and excel in music and cultural pursuits. In all their endeavors, our girls are encouraged to take hold of each moment and make it count. Leadership development is also a focus. We believe it is essential that the girls are trusted to make decisions, step up to leadership, and own responsibilities, helping them grow.

    We know that the very best schooling prepares students for the future. Our girls are entering a world that requires them to be critical and creative thinkers, flexible in responding to challenges, and confident to use technology as a powerful tool. Our modern facilities and commitment to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics enable each girl to harness her future possibilities confidently.

    A high percentage of women who have become leaders in their field was educated at girls' schools. Girls perform better at school and in life if they are educated at single-sex schools.
