An inspiring community


The Melbourne Girls Grammar Boarding House is an environment that attracts girls who are intrinsically driven and independent. Here, they have the opportunity to seek out experiences that may not have been possible in their home towns. The Boarding House is a unique and electric powerhouse of like-minded girls who imagine the future and begin planning for it.

The peer support in the Boarding House empowers girls to motivate and challenge one another. Boarders share both their challenges and successes. These shared experiences build a great depth in the relationships formed. Girls can struggle with the challenges of being far from home, the academic rigour, the continual development of life skills required for residential living, and navigating differences in a shared space.

They also celebrate the highs with one another. Their academic wins and their new passions forge a sense of community in the house which strengthens its connection to the school. The culture of giving back to the house evolves when the girls feel the connections and support provided by peers and staff. This forges the foundation for a robust Boarding House Council, active Boarding House Captain and Vice Captain, year level meetings and Food Committee meetings. This sense of community also helps smooth the transition of boarders returning each year and those beginning their boarding journey.

As well as being a peer-driven environment, it is also the relationships with the staff that embodies women of action, with many of the House Mentors studying Master’s Degrees in a broad range of fields and some who work for the Department of Education. There are psychologists, teachers, volunteers, sportswomen and many who have lived and worked overseas. They are strong, empowered and ambitious and share insights about options and opportunities for the girls’ future careers.

The girls who board with Melbourne Girls Grammar show power and strength and do amazing things. The school has an Olympic pistol shooter, a boarder who has an online business, participants in the National Cheerleading Championships, mathematicians, a national touch rugby player, artists and girls who volunteer locally and internationally.
