I had a really awful time with my mental health and the school system didn’t really support as much as I needed. But overall the school has lovely staff and tries to stick to good morals!
And it’s Nelson college for girls and I would like to be called a girl because I am, and the students that make a major fuss on not being a girl probably should of chosen another school.
As I have spent many years away from this school I still remember a P.E teacher Miss Rout being an ultimate bully. The boarding aspect was appalling. Biased treatment depending on who you were, not one rule for all. I could write a book.
teachers have been known to be rascist and homophobic, administration is known primarily for covering up bullying and introducing rules that are dehumanising, especially to older students. uniform is expensive, especially the pants which were introduced partially to accommodate gender non-conforming and trans students and thus are not accessible to many of these students.
my biggest issue with the school is that some of the counsellors are not properly trained, which to my knowledge, has come very close to costing the lives of mentally ill students due to improper care. avoid this school if u can. if not, good luck
my friend had to leave this school because the bullying was so bad and the administration did absolutely nothing about it other than cover it up. i think that says enough. also the teachers are terrible and when people complain they do nothing, then they get mad when the students don’t do well.
Nelson College For Girls is a school that preaches about diversity but discourages anyone who doesn’t fit into their ideal perfect student box. Most teachers fail to show any empathy when it comes to students mental health. This school expects you to achieve greatness without providing the proper resources to get there. Students are expected to show the PRIDE values
(Positivity, Respect, Integrity, Diversity, Empathy)
But these things are not showed to students who are struggling in any way. This school has also covered up bullying as to not get a bad reputation, students being bullied are offered no support. Although I have made awesome friends at NCG I don’t feel as if I’m achieving to my best potential there.
