Flexible Boarding Options
Canberra Girls Grammar School (CGGS) provides a range of flexible boarding options to meet the needs of our students and their families.
Traditional full-time boarding
International students and students from remote areas typically choose to board full-time. Students live in the Boarding House seven nights per week.
Weekly boarding can take some of the pressure off busy family life. Students stay four nights at school (Monday to Thursday) then three nights at home (Friday to Sunday). This is a perfect solution for many families.
Flexi (temporary) boarding
Flexi boarding is an attractive option to help families meet their commitments. A student may have sport or music or another activity after school. Rather than travel in the dark, she can stay in the Boarding House for one or two nights a week (subject to places being available).
If you’re travelling for a few weeks, or if there is an illness in the family, you may take up the option of occasional boarding by booking in for just a week or two. Occasional boarders will be surrounded by friends and have plenty of opportunities for study and activities. They will also be taken to all their regular co-curricular activities.
