Prepare for Boarding


Prepare for Boarding

We understand that enrolling your child for boarding school is a huge commitment – emotionally, academically and financially.

Penrhos College and Wesley College – brother and sister schools in Perth – are hitting the road to help demystify the whole process of preparing for boarding, to enable country families to make informed decisions.

Join us for our ‘Prepare for Boarding’ event in Hyden, for a comprehensive overview of what’s involved, together with checklists, toolkits and more.

This free event is designed to provide general information – you do not need to have any connection to either College.

All children are welcome to attend with their parents and explore a range of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) activities.
