Jandy didn't really like me much because of my blue and green hair but when I talked to her she was always nice. Although she did some dumb stuff. Did we really need a flat screen at the office?!

Oh you haters... She's carrying OGHS back into the domain we used to dominate. Our image is changing with other school and is actually positive. Get to know her and do well for the school..

Theres a lot of negative comments here, but really Mrs Anderson is really nice - she attended my netball games and came to our choir competitions to support us, she's really kind once you know her.

Shes not amazing, but she must be doing something right if the school does so well. If your going unnoticed, why not actually DO something that will get you in the spotlight? you know, just a hint.

Its obvious that you are only concerned with our image! Sure, we should uphold our good rep, but please come down out of the clouds and look after us girls. After all, WE ARE THE SCHOOL!.We will never be Columba College or St Hildas Collegiate, we are Otago Girls. But yeah good job on some stuff you are doing... I suggest promote high acheivment too not just literacy..

i loved the way she doesn't give up on you if you arent very good at maths or even dont try very hard. She never gives you the impression that you've disappointed her but still gives you an equal chance as everyone else. She doesnt have obvious favourites which is also very professional. Though saying this she does take you through the curriculum a tad fast for people who need an extra bit of help

well she is okay but i think she needs to think more about what the students want, and not worry about what the school looks like as a whole so much. well in all shes not bad.

She maybe strict, but its for the best. She has made otago Girls into the best all round girls school in Dunedin. Educationally, sports, all round. The blazer policy is actually really good, i'll admit that our blazers look much more professional than jersesy or vests.

Yeah - strict man. BUT still ran a good school. Xtremly passionate about her students and where they'll end up. What's wrong with wanting to be the best. Jan rocked.

If she is such a great teacher I wonder why she feels the need to constantly reminds us of her teaching experience and qualifications, whenever anyone questions her. Just because you've had years of experience at something, doesn't mean you're any good at it.

Although Ms Andersons notes are clear and she has good content knowledge, she needs to learn basic people skills as she seems unable to communicate with students without making snide remarks. I would also suggest she attend some form of anger management course as her class roll is rapidly decreasing due to her unnecessary temper.

I beleive she is a very good teacher with good content knowledge, but i dropped statistics because within teh first day she got really angry for very little reasons. I felt as though i was back in primary school again.

There are 800 students in our school, do you no 800 people personally? Its a hard job to do that and run a well respected school to. She does care about all sports and cultural events, very proud of school acheivements.Its harsh some people to judge her for not being able to please 800 pupils + staff + community at the same time. Great principle :):):)

She did not have any idea who people were after 5 years there or even that they were 7th form. Doesnt care about any sports but netball, vollyball and basketball. Also not helpfull when had meetings and never did anything about probs. Missed an organised meeting because she was to busy on the phone once, we waited for at least 15 minutes!

I guess she's quite nice, but I don't think that she supports everyone in the school because she doesn't really support all sports, just the ones that are really good, or are really popular.

People think too harshly of her, she is actually really nice and does care. Its just a thing, people tend not to like principles...although her kindness does take a while to show, so give her sometime
