A Sense of Family

The Board of Governors’ vision of ‘Every Girl, Every Chance, Every Day’ is truly supported by the House staff who ensure each girl has the opportunity to reach her full potential.

The inclusion of every new girl in her ‘Family Group’ is an important first step to ensuring a sense of belonging.

New girls attend ‘Buddy Breakfasts’ with their Year 13 leaders who soon get to know their younger buddy and offer her support throughout the year.

Theme dinners are common events and are an opportunity for family groups to bond in costume while having fun together. Group outings to films, plays, concerts and sporting fixtures are also organised regularly by House staff.

Annual events such as ’The Hunger Games’ and ‘The Amazing Race’ foster the competitive spirit among the girls and provide enormous fun for everyone.

The special event on the annual calendar, however, is always the Mid-Winter Christmas Dinner and concert to which all Year 13 boarding parents are invited.
