A strong network of residential staff ensures a family environment exists where care and attention are available, day and night. Pastoral care and effective communication with parents is a priority. The Principal of NEGS and the Director of Boarding are among the many staff members who reside on the NEGS campus.
The boarding experience is an integral part of life at NEGS for both Australian and International students. NEGS aims to provide an environment that enhances learning and provides support for the spiritual, emotional and physical development of the boarders. Boarding provides opportunities for students to develop independence, effective and meaningful relationships, responsibility for themselves and others, the ability to share space and facilities and resilience through their personal and communal encounters.
The residential staff play a very important role in promoting the value of boarding and making our school a very special environment. Residential staff make up part of the extended circle of caring staff in other key areas of the school that can be called upon to to give your daughter the support and guidance she might require.
