Extra-Curricular Activities

Being a boarder does not mean missing out on extra-curricular activities.

Students are able to participate in extra-curricular activities outside of the recreational program set by the College. Some of our boarders are involved in Cadets, swimming clubs, dancing and theatrical productions. Our Boarding staff assist in providing transport to and from these activities.  Parents should discuss their daughter's extra-curricular activities and commitments on enrolment.

Regular Exercise

Our boarding students are encouraged to live active lifestyles, with many opting to use the Strand beachfront for walks or runs in the mornings and afternoons. Study timetables are programmed so that the girls have some free time in the afternoons to take a break and get some fresh air - exercise is encouraged.
