Day boarding program

Your child can participate in the after-school activities they love, eat dinner and finish their homework - all before they get home. They can also get help with their homework from a member of the academic staff after school. You can have peace of mind knowing your child is being cared for in a safe, supportive and familiar environment.

Who uses day boarding?

This option may suit busy families who have work or other commitments (such as young children) or families who live out of town. Some families are finding it increasingly difficult to juggle after-school commitments (various activities, staggered pick-up times, dinner and homework) without exhausting themselves and their children.


More and more families are using this service for one, two or three evenings (Monday to Thursday) each week, depending on the needs of your family.

Pick up time

It is very important that parents collect their child on time from the Handbury Information Centre, Myrniong Campus. All Day Boarders must stay until the designated pick up time to avoid disrupting dinner and Prep routines.


Day Boarders are required to follow all School and Boarding House rules. Students and their parents must be aware of all Boarding House rules.
