Boarding At St Brigid’s College, A Snapshot
Sending your child to Boarding at a new school may be the biggest and most important decision you make in your life. Nestled in the Perth Hills of Lesmurdie, St Brigid’s College aprovides full boarding facilities, activities and a tailored program for each year and level of student enrolled. Our College also work together to prepare your child for their boarding journey and for Year 7 Boarders beginning in 2024, the Colleges have the Boarding Ready Programme where Boarders:
CONNECT with other students who will be attending the same boarding school;
LEARN about elements of their new school and new boarding environment; and
DEVELOP confidence in order to support their transition.
NURTURED LIVING AT ST BRIGID’S BOARDING
When a parent considers Boarding for their child, they know that they are about to embark on one of their child’s biggest of life’s journeys but it’s a journey for the parent as well. That is why St Brigid’s College doesn’t just enrol a student at Boarding, the whole family is enrolled by making sure that a parent is provided with the assurance that their family will have a the best experience possible by creating a supportive environment with tailored supports.
Boarding at St Brigid’s aims to recreate many aspects of home and a conducive environment to cater for our Boarders through the varying stages of their spiritual, emotional, cultural and social development. We are home to all our local Boarders who come from regional and rural locations, as well as International Boarders, and when requested, we also have local Boarders who join us for short terms.
When enrolled, our Boarders are academically supported with set study times and tutors who assist their learning growth and on weekends they enjoy recreational activities ranging from shopping therapy to ice skating and even in-house pamper sessions.
Our Boarders also have full access to the school facilities which include a heated swimming pool, fitness room and tennis courts.
If any of our young people need additional support because they are feeling homesick, anxious, stress or just experiencing general teenage troubles, our College Councilor makes a dedicated visit once a week to help them, through gentle discussions and strategies. Our stay-in House Mums also provide the nurturing support, guidance and advise when needed to help the young growing minds in their care develop a strong sense of self assurance.
