"Boarding is so much fun! It's like having a big sleepover with all your friends and sisters, every day." Year 8 Boarder
Our Boarders are fully supervised by experienced staff, and actively engaged in various activities on weekends and during the school week, participating in the full life of the College.
There is also a Boarders' representative Council which meets regularly with our Boarding staff to consult and plan age appropriate and fun activities.
Our Boarders can choose to be as busy or as relaxed as they like and may even have the odd job to do, just like home!
Some of our more recent activities have included:
- Annual Boarders' Coffs Coast weekend
- Participating in the Park Run (and the Westpac Colour Run)
- Visits to the markets in Armidale or Bellingen
- Going to (or participating in) the movies or musical performances
- Master Chef competitions
- International theme nights
- Christmas in July
- Birthday parties
- Regular participation in various sports, music or Cattle team
- Community service both in and outside our College community
Our Boarders are also invited to attend social events, activities and performances by other schools, both locally and further afield.
Sport, Music & other Activities
Sport and music are important features of our co-curricular activities and allow students to extend the range of participation developed within the school timetable.
Girls learning to play an instrument are able practice every weekday, under the supervision of a member of the music staff. There is also a piano available in the boarding house.
Our boarders also have the opportunity to participate in weekend sport, and bus transportation provided by PLC Armidale is available to take the girls to Sport UNE, to access the gym and pool facilities.
Many of our Boarders are also members of the busy PLC Armidale Cattle team which attends many local and state Agricultural Shows such as the Brisbane Royal (Ekka).
For more information about the diverse range of activities available to our Boarders, please contact our Head of Boarding.
