Grammar Stopover and Sleepover

We understand the special challenges our busy families face trying to ensure that their children can participate in the many activities that take place at the School, in particular before and after school.

The School is pleased to offer two services for students from Years 7 to 12 within our Boarding community. Grammar Stopover is available from Monday to Friday and Grammar Sleepover is available from Monday to Thursday to enable students to participate in School based activities.

Grammar Stopover

This provides the opportunity of an extended school day from 3.30pm until 9.30pm.  Students essentially become a short-stay visitor to the Boarding community with access to:

  • Supervised Library study or attendance at School sport practise or after school activities
  • Evening meal with Boarders
  • Academic supervision of evening study with the Boarders

Parents must pick their children up by 9.30pm from Boarding or direct from game or School activity venue.

Cost:      $35 per stay per child

 Grammar Sleepover

This provides the opportunity of a single overnight stay in Boarding during the week, Monday to Thursday.  It provides the following benefits:

  • Afternoon tea with Boarders after school
  • Allocation of a bedroom within a boarding cottage for the overnight stay

The Grammar Sleepover includes meals, bus transport, supervised study, supervision by boarding staff and access to a designated boarding unit overnight. Linen is provided or students can choose to bring a sleeping bag and their own pillow. Students must bring their own towel and toiletries. If the overnight stay is a regular booking extending for a term or more, some locker storage may be available.

Cost:      $60 per stay per child

Bookings

Bookings should be made a minimum of 48 hours’ in advance, unless an unexpected event requires a booking at short notice.  Bookings for a Stopover or Sleepover are to be made by downloading the booking form and returning the completed form to the Enrolment Office, who liaise directly with Boarding staff.

Priority will be given to students who reside outside the immediate Bunbury area as they face the greatest challenge of distance.  Requests from local Bunbury families will be assessed based on availability of places within Boarding.
