A Day In The Life At NEGS

As the day begins on our expansive 50-hectare campus at NEGS Armidale, a remarkable day awaits our students. From the co-ed Kindergarten and Junior School to the all-girls Senior School, NEGS provides a nurturing environment where students hearts and minds thrive. 

In the Junior School, the day begins with a sense of wonder and excitement. Surrounded by the serene beauty of the playground, students embark on enriching activities, including caring for the animals that call NEGS home. Our renowned equestrian and agricultural  program allows students to interact with horses, cattle, sheep, pigs, and poultry. They feed, groom, and learn about sustainable farming practices, fostering a deep connection to nature and a profound appreciation for agriculture.

NEGS Armidale boasts vast agricultural facilities that offer students ample space to explore and learn. They cultivate vegetable crops, tend to the orchard, and gain practical skills in land management. Working in harmony with nature, students develop a strong understanding of sustainability and responsible land stewardship.

Beyond the classroom, students have a plethora of co-curricular activities to explore their passions and talents. From sports teams to music and performing arts, students have abundant opportunities to discover their interests and develop their skills.

The boarding experience at NEGS cultivates a strong sense of community and lifelong friendships. Students form deep bonds with their peers, supporting and sharing memorable experiences. Boarding houses provide a safe and welcoming environment, with caring residential staff offering pastoral support.

Weekends for boarders are filled with activities that promote well-being and personal growth. Mindfulness sessions, cultural events, and social gatherings allow students to relax, unwind, and forge meaningful connections with their fellow boarders.

As the day draws to a close, day students head home and boarders retreat to their comfortable boarding houses, where they feel a sense of belonging and security. Caring housemothers and boarding staff create a safe and nurturing environment, allowing students to rest and recharge for the adventures that await them the next day.
