Girls at Enwood House are encouraged to succeed. They become increasingly wise and independent young women with core values of respect, responsibility and integrity. All students at Enwood House are accepted for their diversity of beliefs and opinions. They are encouraged to take responsibility for the care of themselves, others, the community and the environment. Inherent in boarding house life is the value of long lasting friendships formed with tolerance and compassion.
The boarding house caters for up to 90 Year 7 to 13 students from all over the country, as well as international students. Located only a block from the school, Enwood Hostel is also convenient to Splash Palace (international sized swimming pool), Southland Stadium and Velodrome for netball, squash, basketball, volleyball and cycling, as well as the Southland Hockey Turf.

Boarding is also a great option for girls whose families live outside the city or whose parents travel frequently. If you are travelling overseas without your daughter or if someone in the family is unwell; or during exam time to avoid long commutes short term stays are welcomed. The grounds are safe, private and quiet, and provide a warm and comfortable home stay away from home.
We provide a safe and caring environment for girls, while nurturing and encouraging them to meet their full potential as young women.
