Round Square

Girls’ schools prepare students to be citizens of the world, using rapidly developing technology and forming connections with girls in other countries. There is an emphasis on social justice and community as girls are encouraged to make connections with others outside the classroom walls. NEGS has a strong commitment to the Round Square organisation.


NEGS girls receive sound academic results, have outstanding achievements on the sports field and flourish in the arts. However, it is in the development of personal qualities where NEGS really stands out.

NEGS girls are accomplished, assertive, kind, happy, vibrant young women ready to embrace the wider world and all it offers.
