I often tell people that this is the best job I’ve ever had. And it’s true, I genuinely love working as the Head of Boarding at St Mary’s Anglican Girls’ School and living here on campus, with our 185 boarders.
I believe that the boarding experience provides young girls with a wealth of opportunities and experiences that they may not necessarily have access to at home; however, I also recognise what a huge responsibility it is to place your daughter in our care.
Together with my team of dedicated boarding staff, I am committed to creating a true sense of home for the girls who board at St Mary’s. Each of our girls is seen as an individual, with her own set of unique abilities, personalities and needs. It is our job, at Anne Symington House, to help each girl achieve to her best academically but also to become a happy, fulfilled young woman and to flourish and grow in our care.
Please take the time to look through our website to get a sense of what life at St Mary’s is like for the girls, from our daily routines, to where our boarders come from, and to what I think makes St Mary’s unique and special as a boarding home.
There is no better way to learn about our school though, than visiting us in person. Next time you are in Perth I would love to show you around our fabulous facilities so that you can experience all that St Mary’s can offer your family.
I believe it is our commitment to putting the girls first and to creating that special sense of family, fun and friendships that the boarders here cherish, and I look forward to sharing this with you.
