Hopetoun Hall is a happy and nurturing home that encourages the growth of faith, independence and social responsibility for students from various social and geographic backgrounds. Located only three kilometres from the College via a quick tram ride, Hopetoun Hall is a modern 40-bed facility providing a secure, comfortable, caring and supportive Catholic environment for students from Years 9 – 12. The off-campus location provides boarders with a sense of ‘going home’ at the end of each school day.
It’s managed by a resident Director of Boarding, who is assisted by a team of dedicated and experienced staff. Boarding staff appreciate and encourage open and regular communication between boarders’ parents and are aware that it is vital in ensuring quality care for all boarders.
Year 12 students are accommodated in individual purpose-built rooms serviced by a communal kitchen. Students in Years 9 to 11 enjoy spacious, centrally heated shared facilities. All rooms have internet access. Girls enjoy socialising and relaxing in the common rooms. Boarders are well represented with the College community as prefects, house captains, performers, members of sporting teams and as recipients of academic honours. Transition activities are organised early in the school year to welcome new students and strengthen the bonds for all boarders.
When girls leave Hopetoun Hall they take with them skills and friendships which will assist them in taking on life’s challenges.
