The school year commences with a boarders’ Top Town weekend, featuring various fun sporting competitions. It is an ideal way to welcome new boarding students and create House spirit. Boarders love to dress up in colourful and sometimes outrageous costumes for the traditional Valentine’s Day and Mid-winter Christmas dinners, where a fiercely fought House competition usually takes place.
Special outings and weekend day trips are organised by our boarding staff. We endeavour to cater for the varying interests, skills and preferences of individual boarders as we plan our busy programme.
The annual Boarders’ Assembly is another eagerly anticipated event where boarders can showcase their backgrounds and heritage. During the Assembly it is not uncommon to see various forms of farm transport and even four-legged visitors take the stage.
