Nestled on the Range escarpment in Toowoomba, Queensland, Fairholme College was founded by the Presbyterian Church and has been a home away from home for girls from rural and remote Australia for more than 100 years. The College, which enrols girls from Prep through to Year 12, has an enviable reputation for sporting and academic excellence and offers a family Christian atmosphere for up to 240 boarders.
The Head of Boarding, Ms Marguerite Dunne, leads a team of professional caring supervisors for whom the personal safety and well-being of all girls has the highest priority. Contact with the Head of Boarding and her staff is encouraged and the Boarding House is open throughout the term, with no compulsory exeat weekends for boarders.
The girls have access to a wide variety of recreational activities in addition to the College’s extensive sporting and cultural programme. During the week, prep for Junior and Middle School students through to Year 10 is supervised by teaching staff. Access to the library and technology is available at this time.
Fairholme offers an environment where girls learn co-operation and commitment while celebrating their individuality.
