Facilities

A range of comfortable, practical and student focused facilities are provided to make students feel at home and enhance their boarding experience.

Accommodation

Students have their own private room while living at the College. They are encouraged to make it their own space and add their personal touches. They are provided a bed, wardrobe, bedside table, desk and shelving for books and personal items. Their bedroom is generally located near other students of a similar age.

At the College, there are separate male and female dormitories.  Males are never allowed into the girls’ dormitory and vice versa. Common areas are provided for male and female students to gather and socialise.

The dormitories are air-conditioned and include a small kitchenette, table and a lounge area for hanging out. Students are expected to keep the dorms clean and tidy, and respect other students’ privacy and belongings.

Common rooms

At the College, we have a large recreation area where students congregate. There is a pool table, computers, movie area, games and lounge where your child can spend time with their friends and hang out. 

Adjoining the recreation area is a large dining room where the students eat breakfast, lunch and dinner.

We also have a well-equipped fitness centre along with a swimming pool, grassed areas, gardens and sports court.

Transport

The College has a 24 seater bus and a smaller eight seater bus to transport students to appointments and sporting commitments around Northam, and to activities and outings in Perth and other destinations.

As the College is only 500m from the centre of Northam, the students are able to walk to the shops during town leave, sporting venues and other places of interest.

Access to schools

The college is located in a quiet area of town opposite Northam Senior High School. Students attending the high school just need to walk across the street to reach school.

For those attending St Joseph’s School, they are driven a short distance to and from school each day.
