What if my child is sick?
Health and Wellbeing are at the heart of Boarding life at Calrossy, and our Health Centre is equipped for the care of all boarders. All medication is kept with the school nurses and boarders are able to access the nurses both during dayschool and boarding hours. Weekend clinics are run and our nursing staff are on call 24 hours a day.
What is my child has special medical needs?
As a part of the enrolment process each boarder will have an appointment with our Nursing staff and Head of Boarding to review their individual needs. Where specific plans or care may be required our nursing staff work with parents in planning prior to those boarders entering our community.
What activities will my son or daughter have access to?
All our Boarders are encouraged to participate in a team sport if possible, as well as pursue any individual interests or sports. In Tamworth there is a diverse range of recreational activities and sports competitions available to students, from equestrian, hockey, rugby union, rugby league, soccer, netball, swimming, gymnastics, dance and many more.
