On Board Program

Transitioning boys to boarding

On Board is an initiative designed to help Year 6 students transition to boarding school at Christ Church. The program provides academic and pastoral support six months prior to the boys commencing their residential experience at the School. Relationships between the boys, their families and the Christ Church On Board team are pivotal to the program’s success.

Through On Board, boys become very familiar with our Year 7 Year Group Co-ordinator, who together with the Director of the Walters Residential Community, deliver the program. A significant part of the program is forming relationships with future house mates and teachers and learning the technologies that the School use on a daily basis.

The transition program for new boarding students focuses on enabling each boy to:

  • Develop a sense of familiarity
  • Engage in academic work
  • Enjoy orientation activities
