Pastoral care in Dangar House is lead by the Girls’ Education Director who is both a member of the school’s Executive and of the school’s teaching staff. She is supported in the boarding house by a deputy and residential assistants. The Girls’ Education Director works across the school with key staff to ensure academic, residential, co-curricular and health and wellbeing programs are appropriate to girls, and that they feel welcome and nurtured in a safe, caring, inclusive and positive environment.
Outside of school hours, all boarders have access to the school’s excellent facilities, including the heated indoor swimming pool, tennis courts, gym, and fitness centre. Boarders can take town leave during the week when they do not have other commitments. While there is no set number of weekend exeats per term for boarders, all boarders are expected to honour their school and sporting commitments, and some weekends are closed due to specific activities. Leave can be organised with the Girls’ Education Director. A well-appointed Medical Centre is staffed by qualified nursing sisters who are on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and the school doctor also visits three mornings a week. Our nursing staff, and the school doctor have had extensive experience administering to the medical needs of girls.
The purpose of the week is to bring the Round Square IDEALS to life through a range of real and genuine experiences that are not encountered through the regular curricular and co-curricular programs.
