As a residential school since 1931, the St Ursula’s College boarding community remains at the heart of the College.
St Ursula’s Boarding offers a sense of belonging and provides experiences that offer richness and cultural diversity. We aim to support each girl to learn, to grow, and to develop friendships for life. In essence, to make boarding a positive choice, not simply a function of distance.
Did you know that we offer weekly and casual boarding?
To meet the needs of busy families and establish strong study habits, we offer our families the opportunity to book their daughter into weekly or casual boarding. This provides the convenience of 24/7 care and also academic structures that support learning and facilitate wellbeing through
structured and non-structured recreational activities.
A boarding experience sleepover
Some students like to try boarding before committing to it. To support this, we offer a Boarding Sleepover. To enquire, contact our Registrar via firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Boarding experience is award-winning
In 2020, 2021 and 2023, St Ursula’s College has been awarded an Australian Education National Boarding School of the Year Excellence Award in recognition of the quality, caring and dedicated environment we provided for our residential students. St Ursula’s College is the only school in the Toowoomba and Darling Downs region to receive this accolade for two consecutive years, and it is something we are extremely proud of!
Weekend extra-curricular activities
Many girls are involved in sports and other extra-curricular activities. This generally takes place on Saturday mornings. Our students are transported to their weekend activities by our friendly staff. We also provide many great activities such as themed nights, fitness, excursions to Brisbane, pool activities, and other recreational activities to foster connections, communication, and collaboration.
Dining room and meals
The dining room allows the girls to enjoy each other’s company during mealtime. A friendly, respectful atmosphere provides a real opportunity for conversations. A professional catering team prepares all meals onsite in our commercial kitchen. All special dietary requirements are catered for by discussing your daughter’s needs with the Head of Boarding.
