Girls’ Boarding

Boarding at TAS transforms a place of residence into all the best aspects of home, while giving boarders an academic advantage as well as an active and rich social and recreational life.

In our boarding houses, life-long friendships are forged against a backdrop of beautiful grounds, state of the art facilities and historic buildings.

Years 9-12 girl boarders are accommodated in the Girls’ Boarding House and Years 6-8 in Dangar House, providing all the comforts of home in a safe, modern environment. Girls reside in both shared rooms (for younger students) and twin and individual rooms (for senior students). They are cared for by the Acting Heads of Girls’ Boarding, Ms Catey Curtin and Ms Julie Crozier and specialist staff with a keen interest in their happiness and welfare.

The Heads of Girls’ Boarding work 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.

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.

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 Head of Girls’ Boarding. 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.
