Boarding principles

  • Boarding is based on open and honest trusting relationships and mutual respect for the individual.
  • The communication of values is vital to the success of the community.
  • Our aim is the development of a person: emotionally, morally, intellectually, socially, spiritually and physically. All members of the community are expected to contribute and participate so they may broaden their experience, understanding and achievement.
  • Each boarder and member of staff has the right to work, rest, play and relax free from bullying and harassment of any form.
  • Each boarder has the right to extend his intellectual and academic endeavours in an environment that is positive and encouraging, and in conditions that are conducive to learning.
  • There is equality of opportunity for all students regardless of culture, religion, ethnicity and background.
  • Staff and students respect the right of each other to privacy.
  • Leadership in boarding is embraced through the opportunity to serve others.
  • It is observed in students who take a genuine interest in all members of the house, and are positive role models, approachable and who earn the respect of the community without being self-serving.
