Craighead Diocesan School (Timaru) has shaped and influenced young women since 1911. As a school of Special Character, Christian values and principles underpin a dynamic learning environment and our girls are given every opportunity to aspire to excellence. Craighead girls excel in academia, sports and culture within a warm and supportive environment. With our strong links to the Anglican Church, our role is to encourage and equip each girl to explore the richness of a spiritual life for themselves, and to make their own decisions. By nurturing the ‘whole person’, we also nourish our spiritual selves, that vital part of us which seeks meaning and connection, hope and purpose. Our world needs wise young women, committed to building healthy and sustainable communities, through justice, mercy, forgiveness and compassion.
