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 Head of House.
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.
At the heart of the philanthropic centre of the School, since it was established in 1983, is the TAS Foundation. Its purpose is to generate funds to enable the School to give financial assistance and to continually develop the campus through new and improved facilities.
This year the projects we are looking for financial assistance are:
