Boarding at Genazzano

Genazzano remains Victoria's only Catholic girls only boarding school. Boarding offers students a wide variety of positive and significant opportunities. Living in a community environment with fellow boarders provides opportunities for promoting development in all areas of personal growth and enhancing life and social skills.

Hopetoun Hall is home for our boarders while they attend school at Genazzano. It is a friendly place where all girls enjoy community life in an environment conducive to study.

Dedicated and professional staff are committed to providing quality care for all boarders while supporting them in all aspects of their boarding and educational journey.

During their time as boarders, girls are provided many opportunities through music, performance, sports and community activities. Within the house there are many activities such as craft, cooking or excursion nights. New boarders are welcomed with a structured boarding transition program.

Boarders are encouraged to participate socially in personal and group events including friends / family celebrations and group excursions including socials.

Hopetoun Hall boarders are well represented within the College community as Prefects, house captains and as recipients of academic honours, sports and performance awards.

Our boarders enjoy many valuable experiences during their time here including the development of lifelong friendships.

As our girls leave Hopetoun Hall at the conclusion of Year 12, they can be proud of their time in boarding. They leave as independent and capable young women with many life skills and well prepared for the next stage of their lives, wherever that journey may take them.
