The Harriston Boarding House is a small family orientated weekly boarding facility. The pupils arrive on Monday mornings and go home on Friday afternoons. This provides pupils, who live out of town, with a safe and secure “home from home” during the week. The children return to their families on the weekends and this gives the child the best of both worlds. The close collaboration between staff, parents and pupils ensure a seamless integration between school and home.
The pupils are accommodated in separate boarding houses, one for boys and one for girls. Each of these houses can accommodate 12 pupils in 3 separate rooms (a maximum of 4 boarders to a room). Pupils are accepted from Grades 1 to 12. The small number of boarders enables the Boarder Parents to give personal attention to each child and to be alert for any problems that might arise.
