  • Football matches

  • CCBH Idol Xbox nights
  • Cultural events
  • Theatre performances
  • Beach trips
  • Theme park visits (Wet & Wild, Sea World, Dream World)
  • Sporting events
  • Theme dinners
  • Entertainment organised by particular Year groups
  • Charity events.

The Boarding House Recreational Program is supported by a risk analysis and management system that complies with Occupational Health and Safety legislation and duty of care considerations.

The Boarding House has a generous weekend leave policy. All leave is approved by the Head of Boarding, after confirmation of required details. Girls must be collected and returned by parents or hosts, unless special arrangements have been made in writing by the parent or guardian at the time of submitting the leave form. Weekend leave is unrestricted in quantity, with the application of certain conditions.

Special leave is available for Years 11 and 12 students and a special form must be completed for this leave at the beginning of the year.
