At St Dominic’s Newcastle, we went to great lengths to create a warm, caring home where your child can enjoy their school years while being support academically, physically and emotionally. Our caretakers are teachers and sports coaches from the school and they fulfil the roles of parent, coach, and councillor of sorts, by building a close relationship with each boarder.
Primary school and high school boarders are housed in separate facilities, with boys and girls further having their own areas. The primary school facility consists of dormitories with only 10 to 14 boarders, while the high school facility accommodates up to 26 boarders with two boarders per room that has an en-suite bathroom.
What our boarding school offers
Our on-site caterers prepare healthy meals (including themed dinners) and provide bread, milk, butter, peanut butter, syrup, tea, and coffee for learners to use throughout the day. A fridge, kettle and microwave are also available. Basic crockery and cutlery are provided, but we encourage learners to bring their favourite mug for another taste of home.
Other services at our boarding school include laundry and housekeeping, a TV with DStv, a fridge, kettle and microwave, a gymnasium, as well as a table tennis and pool table. Boarders may have visitors per arrangement, we arrange fun activities over the weekends, and we encourage weekly life-group sessions with voluntary church services on Sundays. We also arrange monthly town visits and boarders may, of course, keep their cellphones with them to stay in touch with you and other loved ones.
