CATERING AND KITCHEN STAFF
The College employs several catering staff who provide a critical service to all residents in the House as well as many other College wide functions. Their role is quite diverse from running high end functions to meeting the day to day nutritional and dietary needs of the boarders and boarding staff. Like most kitchens, their work patterns ebb and flow depending on the demand on their services. They also expected to meet compliance requirements of a registered commercial kitchen under Local law.
SENIOR ACADEMIC BOARDING STAFF
Senior Academic staff are responsible for the academic progress of each student and the supervision of Prep time in the evenings. This entails providing subject specific support where possible, as well as creating the impetus for students to develop a depth and breadth of personal and organization skills that provides the platform for academic growth. Senior academic boarding staff are on site Monday to Thursday evenings.
Duty staff (non-residential and residential) are responsible for the smooth functioning of the House and work with other key staff to ensure that they are consistently applying the processes, expectations, rules and values of the College and Boarding House.
Embedded in those functions is the overarching approach of providing each student guidance, compassion, a level of care and attention that promotes belonging and growth, both academic and character, with the end goal to produce outstanding young men and women.
The Residential Duty Staff live on site and are responsible for the oversight of the health, safety, behavior and general well-being of the boarders throughout the night, including administering medication and providing first aid and support as required.
THE ADMIN/STUDENT SUPPORT OFFICER
This is a key ‘front of House’ role in the House. The role has many purposes from the administration of first aid, monitoring sick boarders, arranging medical appointments and transport, accompanying students when warranted and coordinating other transport requirements. They are the first point of contact for guests and parents and coordinate leave for exeats and holidays, including booking homestays for our international students. This role is pivotal in strengthening and maintaining communication between home and the Boarding House.
Year Coordinators (YCO) have an overarching responsibility for the holistic development of all boarders in their care. YCO will have several year levels for whom they are responsible for and a key component of their role is to develop enduring relationships with the student and their family. They are the primary point of contact for families whilst students are boarding. It is a multifaceted role, where issues with wellbeing, welfare, academic performance, character development and student engagement in College life are all supported.

This involves responsibility for all components and operations of the House including academia, culture, pastoral support, student welfare, sports and recreational activities, catering, laundry, and community relationships. The HoB works closely with all boarding staff and students and is available to parents as needed.
