Our aim within our the Calrossy Boarding Community is to provide students with an environment in which all members of the community conduct themselves with dignity, tolerance, integrity, kindness and respect for others and themselves. A high standard of behaviour is expected at all times we recognise that each boarder is unique and we work hard at incorporating the individual's needs within the community organisation. Parents are considered an integral part of our boarding community and we welcome discussion concerning any aspect of their child's lives whilst in our care.
Boarding at Calrossy Anglican School is a unique experience. With over 220 Girls and Boy Boarders accommodated on 3 separate boarding campuses we have the chance to operate on a unique basis, accessing the facilities of the 2 separate educational campuses and enjoying the comfort and support offered by committed and caring staff who are actively involved in the day to day lives of all our boarders.
The Secondary Girls boarding community is divided into four distinct houses over two campuses where boarders progress according to year level. Boys Boarding began in 2011 and is situated on its own distinct campus. Since that time we have seen a positive response to the opportunity for families to have both their daughters and their sons experience single sex education and be a part of the one School community.
While the boarding and wider school facilities are exceptional, a more important feature of boarding at Calrossy Anglican School is our boarders themselves. Students come from regional NSW and properties, from metropolitan areas and from interstate and occasionally overseas having the opportunity to learn and grow together, appreciating the different views and aspirations of young people from a wide range of backgrounds - creating a community of their own.
