For more than a century boarders have been an integral part of our rich diversity. This week, ‘Celebrating Boarding’ Week has provided an opportunity for the School to give the community a glimpse into what makes boarding life so unique at Christ Church.

“Over the years our boarders have been known for being wonderful team mates, class mates and contributors to our community,” says Director of the Walters Residential Community Brad Downing as he reflects on the contribution of current and past boarders.

“The pandemic has created lots of disruption for us this term, however once the boys enthusiastically returned to campus, we’ve noticed an elevated level of care, kindness and compassion which has spread throughout the entire school community.”

“We’re so proud of the maturity which our boarders have shown and the resilience they have demonstrated to get through the current global crisis.”

Thank you to the boarding boys and staff for making this week so enjoyable.
