Our aim is to provide a holistic educational experience for young men boys. Their first priority is their schooling. Outside of class, over two-thirds of students time is spent in the boarding environment and structure. This too is an opportunity for growth and development, in so many ways. Through pastoral care, through recreation, through chatting and making friends with others, through the arguments that boys have and simply through rubbing shoulders with boys from so many different places, through learning to look after their belongs, and living in a structured environment - these are all opportunities for the boys to learn life-long skills.
One of your concerns will obviously be that your boy might be a long way away from you. We understand how worrying this might be for you. Your boys might be far away from home in terms of distance yet communication is very important to us. Please feel welcome to phone any time if you wish to speak to your son.
Each boy has a Residential Coordinator, or in the case of the new dormitories, a Head of House.
Newsletter are sent out each term to keep families up to date with what is happening at the College. You are also welcome to like the St Teresa’s College facebook page which will keep you up to date on news and activities the boys have been involved in and draws attention to any matters that need to be addressed.
Most importantly, families are always welcome to come and stay with us. We have accommodation specifically for that purpose. We do understand that because of cost and other commitments this is not always possible, equally, we do want you to know that you are always most welcome to stay.
