Dress-up cel­e­brates board­ing

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Front Page -

METHODIST Ladies’ Col­lege (MLC) stu­dents cel­e­brated Na­tional Board­ing Week in style last week, rais­ing funds for Royal Fly­ing Doc­tor Ser­vice.

Board­ing pre­fect Bon­nie Hy­att said she and her board­ing ex­ec­u­tive wanted to give back to the ser­vice, which touched many board­ing fam­i­lies across ru­ral WA.

“We fig­ured the best way to raise money would be to hold a dress-up day, be­cause all the stu­dents at MLC love dress­ing up,” she said.

“I saw so many girls dressed up around the school wear­ing flan­nel shirts, high-vis and jeans.”

Ms Hy­att grew up on a wheat, barley and canola farm an hour north­east of Esper­ance, at­tend­ing pri­mary school in Condin­gup and head­ing to MLC at the start of Year 8.

“It was quite dif­fer­ent when I came to MLC; there were more than six kids in my class,” she said.

“Board­ing is the best thing that has ever hap­pened to me. You grow to love ev­ery girl in the board­ing house as your own sis­ter and make spe­cial fam­ily bonds for life.”
