Come Aboard the Galleon at College House!
College House, the school’s residence, offers the best of both worlds to the girls who board there for four nights and spend the weekends at home. Avoiding long journeys and traffic congestion allows the girls to spend more time on their studies, sport and other co-curricular activities.
Home to 65 girls College House, situated in Currie Road, is within easy driving distance of the north and south coasts. The building is situated on the east of the school campus, with the fitness centre, squash courts, tennis courts, aquatic centre and Astroturf on the doorstep.
The Head of Boarding and four boarder mistresses live on site and are on hand to look after the girls, supervise their prep and attend to their needs. The school nursing sister starts her day’s routine at College House on a Monday and if girls are ill, they are cared for in the sanatorium at College House.
The beautiful building has been recently refurbished and the girls have a choice of coffee lounges, verandas, courtyards and gardens in which to relax.
Homework is done in prep rooms supervised by the boarders mistresses or in the Grade 11 and Grade 12 studies. Computers are linked to the school network.
Termly outings are looked forward to by the girls and casual boarders are welcomed.
