Life as a Boarder

Her Home

As the Carolyn Hauff Boarding House is located across the road from the main College campus, your daughter can walk to and from home each day with her friends.

Our Boarding House is centrally located in the leafy suburb of Clayfield, just north of Brisbane city and only a 10 minute drive from the domestic and international airports.  Eagle Junction Railway Station is a five minute walk away with a bus stop located at the Boarding House doorstep.
 
All our boarders are housed in one heritage listed building. Our girls in Years 5 to 8 share small dormitory style accommodation, Years 9 to 11 share a twin room, whilst Year 12 students have a single room with ensuite and balcony.

All areas of our Boarding House are air-conditioned and are connected to our College’s internet facilities.  Scattered around the building are a number of small sitting areas for relaxing and hanging out with friends, kitchenettes, plus a television lounge with Xbox Kinect and Wii and large screen for special screenings and movie nights.  Also provided is a gym, library, music room, pool table, table tennis, volleyball net, netball hoop and many board games.

Each day, our Head Chef and catering staff provide a choice of hot or continental breakfast ranging from cereals and smoothies to bacon and eggs and pancakes, a packed morning tea and lunch, afternoon tea, three hot dinner choices in the evening including a vegetarian option, and late night supper before bedtime.

We also provide an in-house same day laundry service.

Recreation and Activities

Recreational activities are an important part of what is offered to our boarders.

We provide a holistic recreation programme that is designed to provide opportunities for your daughter to relax and socialise and also to experience new activities and experience life in South East Queensland. Outings include trips to the beach, Southbank, museums, ice skating, theme parks, shopping and socials with other Boarding Schools.

Girls are also involved in various sporting and recreational undertakings outside of the co-curricular activities on offer at our College such as horse riding, dancing, representative and club sport and rowing. Our Boarding House staff personally transport girls to these outside activities wherever possible at no charge to you.
