TAS Country : April 26th 2012
14 Tasmanian Country Friday, April 27, 2012 A home away from home for girls HARMONY: Collegiate Boarding House and, top, students enjoy the school gardens. Boarding school with top facilities ST Michael's Collegiate School in Hobart is an Anglican day and boarding school for girls, offering education in a family- oriented environment. Students attend from kindergarten to year 12, and Collegiate welcomes boarders from year 5. Located amid beautiful gardens in the heart of the school, the Boarding House provides excellent opportunities for boarders to use facilities such as the indoor heated swimming pool, gymnasium, music and dance studios, per- forming arts centre and student centre and library. Collegiate's rich board- ing tradition ensures that each girl is individually nurtured in a family- oriented environment where girls are supported to develop their own identity. For more than its 120-year history, many girls have called the Col- legiate Boarding House their home away from home. Among these is Alison Watkins who is the chief executive of GrainCorp Ltd and a non- executive director of ANZ Banking Ltd. ''My teachers helped me be the best I could be. They gave me the confidence to be a leader, to give every- thing a try,'' Ms Watkins said. Being part of the Collegi- ate Boarding House opens up myriad possibilities. From seeing the state on day trips or overnight camps, to making friends and learning to live togeth- er in harmony, the Board- ing House provides it all. Girls are encouraged to go beyond their comfort zone, to explore their potential and make their mark on the world. Boarders learn about each other and grow together to form a very special extended family. Collegiate offers a wide range of subject choices available to suit the in- terests, abilities and aspir- ations of students. The school also offers vocational education and training programs with national accreditation. Students are given every assistance to help them to create a tailor-made learn- ing experience that will lead them into successful post-school options. The development of the whole individual is para- mount at Collegiate. The school offers in- novative outdoor edu- cation, a plethora of sports, community service, debat- ing and leadership activi- ties. Artistic pursuits such as orchestra, bands, choral groups, musical pro- ductions, dance, photogra- phy and drama are all popular. Students are also able to take part in a wide range of student exchange oppor- tunities around the world. Registrars Katherine Harris and Debbie Kelly encourage families who are interested in boarding to contact them regarding Collegiate's ''boarder for a night'' program. ''This is a lovely way for girls to see what Collegiate has to offer and make an informed decision,'' Ms Harris said. Site 109-11 on First Ave 2012 FREE CONTACT US FOR YOUR DVD PACK!
