Learners attend boarding for school days only. Learners return home on Fridays (or afternoon before holidays) before 5pm and return to boarding by Sunday (or the opening of boarding) between 5pm and 7pm. Whilst residing in the boarding house learners have the rights and responsibilities of full time boarders. Weekday boarding is a good option for parents who are available to supervise and care for their child on the weekend. Weekday boarders have the opportunity of staying for certain weekends and joining set activities. A weekday boarder participates in the program to a large extent but misses out on the majority of the activity program and weekend activities. It is important that the families of weekday boarders and boarding staff communicate effectively to maintain routines and homework completion for learners.
