The GHS Boarding Establishment

The newly-renovated GHS Boarding Establishment accommodates approximately 200 boarders, in a caring and happy environment.

The Boarding Establishment, which was the original Victorian school building, currently houses 220 girls and is under the supervision of the Lady Warden, Housemothers and Boarder Mistresses, all of whom live in the Boarding Establishment and are responsible for the welfare and behaviour of the girls.

The junior phase dormitories are shared as it is easier to make friends this way and it ensures that no girl is ever alone over weekends.

The senior phase girls share cubicles, which each house two girls. Matrics have their own rooms in their own wing of the Boarding Establishment.

There are three lounges, homework areas, a sick bay with two full-time nursing sisters, computer rooms, WiFi connectivity and a sunny dining area. There is also a vast expanse of land that the Boarding Establishment overlooks that is fondly known as the BE Park, where the girls are able to enjoy some time outside.


Situated adjacent to the school, our Victorian gem forms the heart of our Boarding Establishment and provides a homely environment for our girls.
