Life as a Boarding Student

The transition to boarding life

SBC Boarding School nurtures girls to form wonderful lifelong friendships that begin by supporting each other in their transition to boarding. Girls are assisted in this transition through the provision of experiences that enable them to develop self-esteem, competency and self-sufficiency.

We focus on encouraging our boarding girls to be responsible for their own actions and to live harmoniously with their peers. A lively social and co-curricular programme keeps the girls busy and active and promotes effective adjustment to their new lifestyle, in a caring atmosphere that encourages parent involvement.

Boarding House Facilities

Unlike other boarding schools that have shared rooms, all of our boarding girls have the privacy of their own room with a private study area and Wi-Fi access. Each Boarding House is complete with its own lounge room for rest and recreation, kitchen, computer room, bathrooms and laundry room. Dedicated House Mothers care for the girls in each House, providing a safe and nurturing living space. House Mothers work closely with parents to support and encourage the girls in all their endeavours.

Our boarding school can house 135 boarding girls between Years 7 and 12. We have four boarding Houses – Veronica, Teresa, Catherine and Mercy – that are built around a beautiful outdoor courtyard. There is an Activity Room available for all boarding girls for recreational use, such as movie night, board games night, karaoke night, and more.
