Each boarding house has wi-fi access and study rooms, common recreation areas, TV room and kitchens for students’ use and full access to the school’s sporting and recreational facilities.
Pastoral care in the boarding houses is lead by a Housemaster, who is a member of the school’s teaching staff. In each instance a deputy and residential assistants support them. Residential life provides excellent academic support for boarders. Senior TAS teaching staff offer weekend and evening in-house HSC tutoring. Boarders have a vibrant and happy social life, especially on weekends, with activities driven by the interests and initiatives of students with the support of the Housemaster and staff.
Outside of school hours, all boarders have access to the school’s excellent facilities, including the heated indoor swimming pool, tennis courts, gym and weights room. 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, all boarders are expected to honour their school and sporting commitments, and some weekends are closed due to specific activities.
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.
