There is a famous ancient proverb that says, it takes a village to raise a child. At NEGS we believe our School is that village, a strong, dynamic, empathetic community where every single one of our students is given the opportunity to flourish.
Since the School’s inception in 1895, it is this sense of belonging and collective investment that has been critical to the continuing success and longevity of NEGS. Our community is made up of many diverse groups that work seamlessly together. These include our wonderful teachers and staff, our current students and their families, and our treasured Old Girls’ network.
Academic research indisputably demonstrates that community, connection and a sense of belonging is what gives us meaning in life. Recognising and fostering this sense of belonging informs the many decisions made by our Board and Executive team, from building upon our nationally recognised Wellbeing program, to acquiring a puppy for our dog-loving boarders, to developing a strong sense of commitment from the girls and their parents on all aspects of school life.
At NEGS we believe our community is one of our defining strengths and so we continue to strive to invest in the welfare and vitality of all members of our NEGS family ensuring that the culture of NEGS is one of positivity and empowerment.
