HGHS SPORTS CLUBS
Hamilton Girls High School operates a number of Sports Clubs throughout the School. Each club is organised by Parents and Caregivers, who have the opportunity to establish rules and regulations for the governing of each club. Clubs meet once a month to check the progress of teams and to decide on any changes that may need to take place. New members are always welcome; a Club AGM is held prior to the start of each sporting season.
