The Carmel Boarding House is not just a place to stay. It’s a home away from home, where students can form many lasting and valuable friendships with other students and caring House Parents. Positive relationships help students to feel part of the boarding house ‘family’, and to develop a sense of belonging.
We believe our connection with God enables us to value others above self. The Boarding House is a place where students are supported and encouraged in their faith journey, and where Christian values are promoted and upheld. Students can feel safe sharing their faith with others, and participating in worship activities.
We recognise that all students have holistic needs, and that these needs vary from student to student. We endeavour to understand and know each student as individuals, and are committed to ensuring that each student’s physical and mental health and well-being are nurtured.
The Boarding House is an extension of home and school, and assistance is provided to support students with their academic study and opportunities to engage in work placements. The values of self-discipline and perseverance are actively promoted, and students are encouraged to achieve to the best of their ability.
