For Middle School boarders, evening study time (‘Prep’) is conducted in classrooms under the supervision of academic staff.
From rising time until lights out, the life of a boarder is an active and fulfilling one, with age-appropriate routines designed to help them flourish academically, physically, socially and spiritually.
A healthy range of meals served in the school’s main dining room, evening supper in House, and the constant availability of fresh fruit, provide a nourishing and balanced diet.
While there is no set number of weekend exeats per term, 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 Housemaster and Master on Duty.
A well-appointed Medical Centre is staffed by qualified nursing sisters who dispense care and comfort to boarders and are on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The school doctor also visits three mornings a week.
The Armidale School is very excited to announce the launch of our new Day Student ‘All-Rounder’ Scholarships. A limited number of scholarships for 50% tuition will be awarded to students who have demonstrated consistent academic achievement and involvement in sport or the creative arts and who would be enthusiastic about the opportunity of a TAS education. New day students entering TAS in Year 9 or above in 2019 are eligible to apply for these entrance scholarships. The closing date for application is Friday 28 September.
