Boarding Facilities

Our new boarding houses are located right in the heart of the College campus, which means you have direct after-hours access to sports facilities, the library, computer suites, music practice facilities and art rooms. Our location close to Northlands Mall and central Christchurch also provides plenty of options for organised social outings to the movies, restaurants and the like.

It’s been a fabulous start to the year, says Director of Boarding Dianne MacDonald. “Everyone, including our great bunch of tutors, has thrown themselves into all the activities. The StAC boarding spirit continues to be a fantastic energy on the campus.”

The boarders have celebrated Valentine’s Day with a red and pink themed dinner – complete with poetry, decorations and red roses, St Patrick’s Day with a very green dinner, as well as trips to see the Crusaders play rugby, watching cricket games, challenging themselves at Adrenaline Forest, and enjoying the ‘getting to know you’ Top Town activities weekend.
