Daily routine of a boarder

 Across our seven boarding houses, students are organised into separate accommodation for boys and girls, and the same age group live and study together. From rising time until lights out, life as a boarder is a busy and active one.


Meet our senior boarding boys in Broadhurst House.


While each day and house is slightly different, a typical day will look something like this:

  • 6.45 am Wake and shower

  • 7.15 am Breakfast in the Dining Hall

  • 8.00 am Check-in (roll call) and leave for classes

  • 8.15 am Classes start

  • 10.20 am Morning tea

  • 12.30 pm Lunch

  • 3.30 pm Co-curricular activities 

  • 5.30 pm Dinner in the Dining Hall

  • 6.30 pm Check-in (roll call)

  • 6.30 - 8.30 pm Supervised prep (homework)

  • 9.30 pm Bed time

Prep: This is a dedicated quiet study time in the Boarding Houses to prepare for the following day's schoolwork and assigned homework tasks. 

Co-curricular activities: Students engage in performing arts or sports programmes from Monday to Thursday after school. One of the benefits of boarding is that everything is accessible on campus. 

Social activities: We provide a wide range of activities to support student downtime, including games, bikes, televisions, crafts,  gym and sports equipment, along with our facilities on campus, including the pool, gymnasium and multiple fields.  

Weekend activities: Students can apply for leave after Saturday morning sporting commitments. Boarding houses also organise a range of fun weekend outings, including trips to Rotorua, Auckland or Mount Maunganui.
