Boarding activities

Living on campus means the girls have access to many of our amazing facilities.

There are countless team sports the girls can join like tennis, hockey, basketball, netball, swimming, cross country running, athletics, volleyball, softball, gymnastics and rowing, so there is no shortage of sports for the girls to choose from. Weekends are a good time for boarders to catch up on extra study, play board games and pool, go on excursions and social activities. We also encourage girls to suggest activities they would like to take part in.

Come the weekend, our Recreation Officer always has something fun and unexpected in store for the girls. Trips to the movies, shopping, socials, football matches, ice-skating, aquatic centres, concerts and ten-pin bowling – that are mostly arranged with other boarding houses such as our brother school Wesley College in South Perth.  There is an open invitation for siblings from other boarding houses to join us for dinner or excursions.
