Almost half of our boarding community are full boarders who come from Hawke's Bay, Gisborne, Bay of Plenty, Taupo and beyond. We also have a growing international student roll who add significant value and diversity to the boarding community.
Full boarders can arrange their own exeats in addition to those on the calendar. When in residence the boys are kept exceptionally busy with weekend team sports and organised activities as well as downtime with their boarding friends.
At all times the boarders are supported by an exceptional team of staff, most of whom live on the College campus.
Demand for weekly boarding has grown significantly over the years. This clearly indicates that parents are realising the advantages of “the boarding experience”.
Weekly boarding provides a convenient option for busy families and for the boys, it provides extra opportunities for involvement in sporting, cultural and House activities and supported academic study.
At the end of the week, boys can look forward to enjoying quality weekend time at home. For many it provides the best of both worlds.
