Nudgee College

Boarding


Nudgee College Boarding provides boys with valuable opportunities to develop their independence, resilience and confidence. Fellow boarders become brothers and the lifelong friendships that develop lead to endless possibilities beyond graduation.

The Bathersby Boarding Village, which was completed in 2015, is a home away from home. Individual rooms provide a sanctuary for the boys to call their own. The larger house contains common rooms with 6m high ceilings to provide a sense of space and openness. Bathrooms open to vertical gardens offering natural air circulation and air quality. A beautiful, large courtyard sits in the centre of the facility, which is ideal for social gatherings. The entire Boarding Village is secured safely and all entry and exit points are monitored.

Academically, boarders are given every opportunity to thrive through the Reach for the Stars academic tutoring program. During this time, teachers across a range of subjects assist boys with ongoing homework and assignments, as well as preparation for exams.
The dedicated staff, including Heads of Boarding House, House Mums and Supervisors, provide a supportive home-like environment.
The on-campus Health Centre is staffed with highly skilled and caring nurses 24/7, with doctors, dentists, podiatrists and physiotherapists on call. Boarding also has its own fully-equipped industrial kitchen and dining room, staffed with chefs who prepare substantial and nutritionally well-balanced meals.

On the weekend students are treated to various activities and outings planned by the dedicated Recreation Coordinator, including trips to theme parks or sporting matches, cinema or shopping centre visits, laser skirmish, hiking, beach outings, futsal competitions, and much more.
