Welcome to the Boarding House

The Canberra Girls Grammar School (CGGS) Boarding House (known by the boarders as BoHo) continues the long and valued tradition of boarding at the School.

Boarding life enables the School to educate the whole person for the wider world, from within a close and happy community, where self-realisation, challenges and self-esteem are nurtured.

The Boarding House is a three-storey mock Tudor-style building, which was the original school building, established on the Melbourne Avenue site in 1927.

Boarding is offered on a weekly or full time basis with short term boarding options available for day girls. The Boarding House provides excellent, safe and friendly facilities including relaxation and study areas.

The Boarding House is a positive, lively community, where respect, responsibility, initiative, cooperation and endeavour are highly valued. Boarding is an integral feature of CGGS and the School is enhanced by its boarding community.
