Boarding -and- Home Stay

We offer both boarding schools as well as schools which provide school-organised homestay placement.

All our schools have excellent reputations for providing oustanding pastoral care, supervision and the safety and well-being of students is a priority for our schools.

Whether you select one of our schools which offers a structured and home-like boarding solution, providing 24/7 care and supervision by qualified and professional supervisors and Directors of Boarding - or you wish to opt for a private home where your child is in the care of a warm and loving family, often with a child the same age as your son or daughter,you can feel assured that your child will be loved, protected and be in a safe and secure environment.

Within a boarding school environment, there is a Director of Boarding and supervisors (appointed to oversee various year (grade) level groups of students) and these staff 'live in residence' with the students. While the Director of Boarding and his family live in residence, and interact daily and dine with students, they must oversee the smooth operations of boarding life. Boarding supervisors become very much part of the boarding family environment and offer to students advice and support and as many are undertaking PhD degrees there is often a wide range of academic assistance able to be offered to students during nightly study prep time.

Loreto-boarding-relaxMany boarding schools set up their rooms so that senior students in final years of study have their own private area. Those seniors not in their final years of study may share with one other and the junior students usually love their social time and as such share with perhaps 2-3 other students. Activities are always organised for weekends and after-school and all student leave must be documented.

LIVING WITH A FAMILY is also very special and those wishing to join one of our homestay schools, can trust that the schools' programmes ensure thorough checking and matching your child to 'just the right family'. This family in Australia will become a trusted extension of your own family back home. Communication is encouraged and you will be comforted knowing that your child is within a family home, integrating wonderfully - with great support offered - as yoru child adapts to our different culture and language. Your child will be made to feel part of the family and know they have a 'home'.

 

Whether you select a boarding school offering 24/7 supervision and care - or select one of our excellent schools offering their own home stay families - you can be assured that your child will be loved, cared for and happy in their new environment. At any time there is any issue arising, you will be kept informed and the school will ensure that your child's interest are first and foremost.

At times some of our boarding schools may also offer a homestay arrangement however this is only on a case-by-case basis.

LIVING WITH YOU?

Perhaps you are considering applying for a Parental Guardianship Visa so that your child is able to reside with you. `This is possible and our schools will always assist families wishing to have their child live with them while studying in Australia. Please inform our admissions team if this is the case, so our schools are aware of your` plans.
