School Philosophy, Culture, and Ethos
Methodist Girls’ School Secondary girls can honour themselves and others in an open, pleasant environment that nurtures the whole child because of the school’s caring and concerned culture. Godliness – keeping the integrity and moral standards; Excellence – pursuing knowledge and meaningful experiences; and Love – identifying needs, acting, and giving to the local and global communities – are all part of the Methodist Girls’ School Secondary identity.
Reality Outside Classrooms
Reality Outside Classrooms (ROCs) in Methodist Girls’ School Secondary is a relevant, rigorous, and responsive global education that aims to meet the problems of connecting our children with peers and adults from many cultures and learning contexts. The girls travel the Road to Discovery (Year 1), the Road Less Travelled (Year 2), the Highway to the World (Year 3), and the Road to Take Flight (Year 4) during their four years of secondary school (Year 4). They gain a greater awareness of the Asia-Pacific area and the world beyond the oceans outside of the classroom. They travelled the globe and discovered an exhilarating new perspective on culture and themselves in the global village in every place they went.
