We believe the core of a successful and meaningful boarding environment is a cohesive community. Community is at the heart of Kinross Wolaroi School and in this environment people come first and are respected and valued.
Consistency of routine and practice amongst all Houses is crucial, as are the highest standards of pastoral care. Our boarding staff are passionate and committed to the holistic development of young people and act in loco parentis to nurture their talents and interests. The students also have the support of the wider teaching staff.
The Boarding House environment fosters pride, loyalty and kindness. Students' academic, co-curricular, moral and spiritual development, together with their physical wellbeing, is achieved within this setting.
The senior students of the School, our Year 11 and 12 boarders are expected to model appropriate behaviour and assist with the day-to-day running of each House, acting as leaders. Families perform an important role within this community; the staff value their co-operation and involvement.
Boarding at Kinross Wolaroi School is fun, comfortable and busy. We offer modern and family-friendly boarding for almost 350 boys and girls.
Kinross Wolaroi School has a long history of Boarding School education, dating back over 130 years. Our boarders come from the country, city and overseas and this diversity broadens their understanding and view of the world, while allowing students to form friendships that last a lifetime.
