Our reputation as one of Australia’s foremost boarding schools has been built over a century of providing a warm, safe and caring environment for the sons of country and regional families.
First-class accommodation is provided in five modern boarding houses, each with a resident Housemaster, Assistant Housemaster, and Matron together with four adult boarding supervisors. In addition, the Headmaster and Deputy Headmaster reside within the School grounds. While a strong sense of family belonging is promoted, individual space and independence is also supported through private study spaces for all boarders and private rooms for the Year 11 and 12 students. To assist in the formation of sound learning habits, Years 8 to 10 boarders undertake their nightly homework in classrooms supervised by our Mathematics and Humanities teachers. This arrangement has proven its value in the shape of increased academic achievement among the boys.
Good health and nutrition, physical fitness and emotional wellbeing are priorities in our care of the boys entrusted to us. An active Boarding Catering Committee – which includes the students – meets each term to discuss menus and ensure health options in the Old Gym CafÈ. Sport is an integral part of TSS life and tradition and for the boarders it provides an added source of health stimulation that adds to their sense of wellbeing.
