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.
