boys' boarding


Jaffray House has a truly International flavour with Asia, Europe and Australia all represented in our boarding family. We have students from Indonesia, Malaysia, China, Germany, Australia, India, Hong Kong and Korea.

Jaffray House was established in 1964 in a building shared today by the School’s Uniform Shop, Medical Centre, Marketing Department and Archives and moved to its present location at the southern end of the School property in 1971.

We promote a personal approach and for that reason the accommodation has been restricted to a maximum of 50 boys ranging from Years 7 to 12. Male boarders are housed in two buildings. The main building is able to accommodate 28 boys in two-person, carpeted rooms. A separate block for senior students accommodates twelve Year 12 boys in two-person bed/studies complete with lounge and toilet/shower areas.

The main house is serviced by a separate lounge, dining room, toilet/shower complex and laundry. A recreation room including a television room and various activities adjoins the Year 12 block. The house has a staff of six supervisors, two nursing sisters, plus cleaning and cooking staff.
