Boarding Facilities

Walker House

Friends’ offers boarding at our on-campus residence Walker House for local and international students from Years 5 to 12 on a part-time or full-time basis.  

Walker House is managed by a professional team of staff committed to providing a warm, supportive and inclusive environment for boarding students. We aim to provide the highest level of care while building relationships based on trust with our boarders.

Students are provided with their own individual rooms and have separate study and recreational rooms available for their use.  Students also have access to the School’s recreational facilities such as Friends Health & Fitness which includes a heated swimming pool and fully equipped gymnasium. 

Living in secure residential accommodation enables students to learn how to live harmoniously with others. Students learn to respect personal differences and to develop social maturity. Considerable emphasis is placed on co-operation and trust in our community.

The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, but carefully supervised to ensure the well being of all members of the community. We are an international community and we value our global outlook and connections throughout the world. The cultural and religious backgrounds of all community members are respected. We are an active community. Students help manage Walker House through student led committees - Food, Environment, Social, Service and the Walker Student Council. Activities are planned for the students during weekend and holiday times when the boarding residence is open.

Australian students from rural and remote areas may be entitled to some government support.
