Home / Boarding

Geraldton Senior College has excellent boarding facilities within walking distance at the Geraldton Residential College. This facility is maintained by the Government of Western Australia and caters to male and female students enrolled in Years 7 through to 12.

Accommodation – The facility is divided into multiple areas including gender specific accommodation blocks. Single rooms are available, complete with reverse cycle air-conditioning and coded room lock. Each boarder has a king-single sized bed with a desk and lockable cabinet. The main kitchen provides hot and healthy home cooked meals plus snacks. The menu rotates on a regular basis and the staff are open to suggestions and cater for specific dietary requirements. Students make their own lunch to take to school, choosing from a variety of healthy options.

Recreation and Study – The basketball court, bbq area, swimming pool, music and games rooms 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.

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.
