Together, we can foster a collaborative environment that nurtures academic and personal growth.

Welcome to Otago Girls' High School Parent Portal, your dedicated hub for staying connected and engaged with your child's educational journey. Here, you'll find essential information, resources, and updates to support your child's learning experience and ensure you are well-informed about school activities and achievements. 

EDGE Caregiver Portal

Report an absence

Please notify the Attendance Officer of your daughter's absence and provide the reason. 

To report attendance by telephone, please call our Attendance Officer directly at 03 471 9727. If you leave a message, it will be converted to text and emailed for prompt attention. Rest assured, all messages are cleared regularly.

Download our School App

We encourage all students and their parents/caregivers to download our School App.

This is the method the school uses to communicate important messages i.e. cancellations, snow days, sports cancellations etc. The app is the perfect way to communicate if your young person is going to be absent from school for any reason and to connect to the parent portal.  You may need to adjust the notification settings on your phone to make best use of this app.

Once you have downloaded the app search 'Otago Girls' High School'.

The School App NZ is in addition to the Edge App.
