Study Programs & Tutoring

Study Program

Our boarding students have a strict timetable of study that is outlined in the Boarders' Handbook below.

Following the 3.15pm bell, boarders return for afternoon tea and a period of free time, during which they are encouraged to get some exercise and fresh air.  

The afternoon study period takes place from 4.00pm-5.00pm for Years 7 and 8 and 4.30pm-5.30pm for Years 9-12 in the College library or A block classrooms. Teachers and boarding staff supervise these sessions.  There are additional study sessions after dinner and optional sessions on the weekends from 10.00am-12noon and 1.30pm-3.30pm, depending on activities scheduled.


All students are able to make use of the College Tutoring Program, at no cost. Teachers and other students volunteer their time from Monday - Thursday to provide tutoring across a range of subjects. Students are asked to check with their subject teachers for tutoring times and opportunities.
