Christ Church has been caring for boarders for almost a century. Our boarders come from country districts in Western Australia, interstate and overseas. The diversity of their backgrounds enriches school life.
Boarding provides a warm and nurturing educational environment for the boys as they move through their adolescent years. They enjoy the company of their peers and treasure the friendships they develop – friendships that often last a lifetime.
Growing up in a boarding house encourages students to develop tolerance, independence, the importance of co-operation and the value of sensitivity in a very close society. The boys share their school experiences and support one another. They enjoy belonging to a tight-knit community which is small enough for each boy to feel a sense of responsibility for his welfare and success and yet large enough to allow a diverse range of personalities to flourish.
