Stuartholme takes pride in its boarding house and maintains a strong commitment to making the boarding house happy and successful. The school recognises also the contribution the boarding house makes to the life of the whole school. With more than eighty years of experience in conducting a happy and successful residential education facility, Stuartholme has made an on-going commitment to quality improvement based on the recommendations of extensive boarding house reviews adopted by the School Board in 1996 and again in 2002.
A Cultural Experience
Our boarders come from all parts of the World. We have international students - many from Asia, and girls from Brisbane, rural areas of Queensland and northern NSW. We are excited and privileged to partner with the Higher Expectations Program (HEP) through the Cape York Institute providing educational support to a number of indigenous girls from communities in the Cape region. Specialised Pastoral support is available to our international and indigenous students via the International Student Co-ordinator and our Indigenous Participation Officer. We are proud of the diversity in cultural backgrounds that our boarders bring to this community and actively promote opportunities for girls to share their experiences through activities and liturgies.
Education in the Sacred Heart Tradition
At Stuartholme girls are encouraged to achieve personal excellence in all areas of school life. Stuartholme has a strong academic tradition that The House supports through supervised study sessions Monday to Thursday. The girls utilise the one to one iLearn program and enjoy the support of teachers and supervisors. The Library also provides opportunity for the girls to engage with a range of resources to support their learning. The Heads of House liaise closely with the Day school to monitor student academic progress.
