Welcome to the epic that is The Bishop Anstey High School (BAHS), a concept of the visionary Bishop Arthur Henry Anstey established in 1921. The Bishop intended to make heroes of the ‘other girls,’ (girls from a wider cross section of society than was the norm at that time) enabling them to tell their stories, while exuding a character that was dignified and confident. True to the Anglican ethos, the school offers an environment of inclusiveness, scholarly enquiry, tolerance, and pride in self identity, history and religion. The creation of BAHS equated a strong statement from the Anglican Church encompassing not only the importance of education but a much needed focus on women’s education and personal development. Needless to say, generations of BAHS girls have carried themselves in a manner representative of the high ideals of the School.
Over the years, the school has continued to evolve in its importance, as an educational institution and a major contributor to national development. The strong focus on the development of the individual is sustained by the school’s passionate involvement in several extracurricular activities; ranging from several areas of sport to the arts of singing, dance and the creative arts. The school’s motto “non sine pulvere palman” (translated as “not without dust the palm”) is a message of the necessity of struggle on the path towards excellence; a motto that not only speaks to the Anglican Church’s own struggles and triumphs, but the struggles and triumphs of our nation as a whole.
Here is an open invitation to an institution with a strong culture of positive human development of our nation’s young women. In this loving, caring and worshiping community, girls are nurtured to Godliness and good learning and exhibit honesty, integrity, mutual respect, discipline and a sense of responsibility, as a natural expression of their character. Moreover, all girls are encouraged to adopt a culture of selfless service to humanity in keeping with the high ideals of the Hilarian tradition. Come and enrich this great experience of excellence, creativity and dynamism, ‘where no goblin nor foul fiend can daunt her spirit.’ "Non sine pulvere palman."
