Our state-of-the-art Boarding House is located within the College grounds on the second, third and fourth floor of the new administration building. We accommodate Girl Boarders in Year 7 to Year 12 from the inner and outer suburbs of Sydney, country NSW, interstate and internationally.
Our boarding house lodges up to 45 girls and is designed to provide increasing levels of privacy as the girls become more independent and mature. Years 7 to 9 boarders are accommodated in rooms of 4 students. Students in Year 10 and 11 are in double rooms, and Year 12 students have single rooms. Each student is provided with a single bed, wardrobe and workstation with internet access. You can find more images of the facilities below.
Our boarding house is located within the College grounds and it is a short covered walk to the school and performing arts areas, which includes dance studios, a music floor with a recording studio and a drama theatre. Thus, giving the girls every opportunity to participate in the advantages of our After Hours classes and activities. The boarding accommodation (Markham House) was launched officially in June 2016 and is named after its founding members.
BOARDING HOUSE ETHOS
- Ensure boarding is complementary and a valuable addition to the home experience
- Provide a secure and caring environment, supervised by adults, in which the girls will grow and develop academically, socially, physically, morally and emotionally, and to provide the opportunity to pursue their choice of performance
- Provide a community life in which the girls become independent and self-sufficient, and also responsible citizens who live harmoniously with and care for one another
- Encourage the girls to broaden their horizons by engaging in an extensive school program – both during and after school
- Communicate regularly and effectively with girls, parents and staff
- Encourage the girls to accept responsibility for their actions by developing self-discipline
- Maintain a transparent boarding environment where parents and family are welcome
