Prospective boarding students are invited to spend a sleepover night in the Boarding House and a day at the College, to attend classes and meet future classmates. This experience helps the girls understand what boarding at Seymour College is all about. The experienced boarders relish showing the new girls around the Boarding House and campus. Current boarders and day students "buddy" with each new student, to help familiarise them with the Boarding House and College procedures.
We understand that boarding is very much a family experience and we invite parents to take part in a parents' workshop to help them prepare for their daughter's transition to the Boarding House. The Boarders' Parents' Association (BPA) also provides new parents with support, through Regional Zone Representatives and social opportunities prior to the family beginning boarding. The BPA run an event-packed calendar each year which gives new families the chance to form their own friendships for life.
Further information for new boarders and boarding families can be found in the Boarding House brochure.
