The menu rotates on a regular basis and the staff are open to suggestions and cater for specific dietary requirements.

Recreation and Study – The communal courtyard, gymnasium, computer lab, swimming pool and games room are among the features of boarding life. The staff go the extra mile to create interesting activities and encourage boarders to participate in extra-curricular sport for which transport is offered. The daily schedule also takes into account study time and additional tutoring assistance where required.

Pastoral Care – The strong partnership between Geraldton Senior College and Geraldton Residential College creates an integrated approach where Student Services staff from Geraldton Senior College make themselves available to assist students at the Residential College. The staff at the Geraldton Residential College are caring and approachable but are also resourced with a dedicated psychologist to attend to any matters that may arise.
