Boarding at Wesley College
Wesley College, learning in residence
WESLEY’S new, stateof-the-art boarding facility offers a contemporary model of Learning in Residence for Senior School students (years 10–12), who come from rural and regional Australia, metropolitan Melbourne and international locations.
Full integration into the Senior School
Life at the boarding school comprises a schedule of educational programs complemented by cocurricular activities, all fully integrated with the Senior School at our Glen Waverley campus.
“The new facilities and curriculum are not only for the residents themselves, but for all Senior School students.
“Every part of the program is integrated within the Senior School, so there is a seamless transition of support for all students – there are no divisions between day and residential students, and every member of staff is a point of contact for every student,” said Damon Emtage, Learning in Residence director.
The Learning in Residence program recognises that learning is a continuous process that doesn’t stop with the end of the school day at 3.30pm.
There is a strong focus on the development of each individual student, with academic, employment, extension and health and well-being programs to support students’ personal growth.
Students in residence have access to the vast array of cocurricular activities available at Wesley, including sport, music and drama, which cater for all interests and needs.
Modern and contemporary facilities
The Learning in Residence centre is a collection of eight modern architect-designed houses arranged around a landscaped central garden courtyard.
Each house has eight twin-share student bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and mentor living quarters.
The communal dining room, which comfortably seats up to 240 people, is open to day and boarding students.
Enrolments are now open for full- time and weekly boarding options, both of which are wellsuited to rural and regional families.
Learning in Residence Scholarships are available for students from rural and regional Australia in years 10 and 11.
