Could weekly boarding work for your family?

CGGS offers boarding options to cater to your family’s needs in a modern world. Beyond full time boarding, there are various boarding choices to provide convenience and consistency—especially if you live just across the ACT boarder.

Weekly boarding

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 an excellent solution for families who live rurally—it is popular for those within a 1.5 hour radius of Canberra, or parents/carers who need to manage shift, extended, interstate or international work commitments.

Casual boarding

‘As required’ boarding is an attractive support option to back up families to meet their commitments, better manage short times of transition, or unexpected events. For example, a student may have sport or music or another activity after School. Rather than travel afterhours, they can stay in the Boarding House for one or two nights a week (subject to availability). Or, a fortnightly booking may help out parents/carers who are called to travel for an unforeseen business trip or in times of illness or emergency.
