Clayfield College Boarding House is located in the beautiful inner-northern Brisbane suburb of Clayfield. Boarding at Clayfield College started in 1939, eight years after the school was established.
The Clayfield College Boarding House caters for young girls from Year 5 to Year 12. Boarding students come from all states and territories of Australia as well as from overseas. Within Australia, students come from metropolitan and rural areas alike. Internationally, girls travel from all around the globe including Asia and the Pacific Islands.
Modern facilities housed within a beautiful heritage listed building include single, twin share and dormitory style accommodation, small and large recreation rooms, a study room with 30 computers connected to the school network and internet access, a library and music room, craft area, a number of quiet sitting rooms as well as a prayer room for personal devotion.
Boarders are cared for by friendly, supportive residential staff who are qualified in senior first aid and have passed a Working with Children Check to obtain a Suitability Card ‘Blue Card’ from the Commission for Children, Young People and Child Guardian (CCYPCG).
The boarding house has an Activities Officer on staff who organises a variety of recreational activities, as varied as trips to the football to china painting for the enjoyment of the girls in residence during the weekend.
The College kitchen provides nutritionally balanced meals and is supported by a Food Committee, comprising boarders, the Head Chef and Head of Boarding. This committee meets regularly each term to discuss the changing dietary needs of the girls and to plan special food feast nights.
The Head of Boarding is available at all times both to families and boarders, via the telephone during office hours on 07 3262 0221.
