Welcome to Boarding at St Hilda’s School
St Hilda’s School has been offering a caring community life for boarders for more than a century and today, our community comprises 170 girls enrolled from Years 6 to 12. Along with our traditional enrolment of girls from rural Australia, we also have boarders from the nearby Northern Rivers region of New South Wales. Our international boarders and daughters from expatriate families contribute to our school’s diversity and rich cultural fabric.
All senior boarding staff have attained residential care qualifications and are warm and caring in their roles as advisors and mentors. They are assisted in caring for boarders by qualified nursing staff and a wonderful services team who manage the very popular Dining Room.
The Boarding school is made up of Junior and Senior precincts which surround a peaceful, leafy courtyard located at the eastern end of our 14-hectare campus. Nearby are the modern Senior Library where boarders take their Prep or after-school study, the Health Centre, the Langford Theatre and sporting facilities including netball and tennis courts. The McCulloch-Whitby Houses are home to Junior Boarding and the two-level Darragh House accommodates Senior Boarding.
Boarders live in horizontal House structures, according to their ages and year levels. Accommodation styles range from private cubicles in a dormitory setting in Junior Boarding, to twin-share and single rooms in Senior Boarding. Shared common rooms with televisions, games, computers and kitchen facilities, as well as modern bathrooms and laundry areas, are features of Junior and Senior Boarding precincts.
