Accommodation at the College is made up of eight blocks of 16 individual air-conditioned bedrooms. Each dorm building has a dedicated common room or cubicle. These areas are set aside for the students to use for group activities during residential time. Each of these common rooms has a television, refrigerator and a microwave.
The Dining Room is available for Breakfast, Morning Tea, Lunch and Dinner. Students are provided with two to three course meals, prepared daily in our kitchen. Residential staff also provide supper as a special extra for residential students.
The Dining Room is fully air conditioned and is equipped with a large screen and multimedia projector for viewing daily notices, TV, and DVD’s.
Recreational Room and The Club
Students have access to these two areas, both fitted TVs. The Club is also fitted with Foxtel, leather couches, and bean bags for watching movies or catching up on a TV show.
The Recreational Room is where students can play pool, table tennis, air hockey, or board games.
Sport forms an integral part of the College program and facilities are adequate to cover most needs. Students are encouraged to participate in a wide variety of sports and many represent the school in local and interschool competitions.
Interschool and inter-house competitions operate in a variety of sports. Parents are notified in advance of these competitions and are most welcome to attend to watch their son or daughter in action.
Some of the planned events:
- Ag Wing Carnival – an inter-agricultural college carnival.
- Country Senior High Schools Championships (Country Week) – in Perth on the final week in Term 2 with teams in most winter sports and the possibility of a speech team.
- Narrogin town sporting teams including motorcross, hockey, mixed netball, indoor soccer, football, netball and basketball.
The College’s recreational facilities for students to use after school hours and on weekends, include basketball and tennis courts, football and sporting ovals and cricket practice wickets as outside activities.
The Residential staff will arrange and operate other activities depending on student interest.
Weekend fishing and camping trips also occur under the guidance of staff. Major study trips to the Eastern States are undertaken on alternate years.
The College provides a laundry service with Narrogin Laundry. Personal clothing and bed linen is collected and returned on a weekly basis. It is imperative that ALL articles to be laundered be clearly and permanently marked with the student’s name.
The cost of student laundry is included in the residential fees if using the commercial laundry service. The College does have washing machines available for students to wash some small items of clothing at student’s expense.
Each student is to put out clothes to be washed (except overalls) on the days designated:
|Monday pick-up||Wednesday return|
|Wednesday pick-up||Friday return|
|Friday pick-up||Monday return|
The College employs Residential Supervisors to run the residence under the leadership of the Residential Manager. They provide pastoral care, support and guidance and ensure welfare and social development of students under their care. Their role is closely aligned with parenting as it involves supervising students after school hours, assisting in the organisation and undertaking of activities, trips and excursions, transport service to and from town for shopping, appointments, sport and social activities. They supervise meals, compulsory homework, duties, residential discipline, sports and recreation.
