Salesian House staff provide care to our boarders and encourage a welcoming and inclusive environment.
As a 5 day boarding facility, boarders return home each weekend.
Boarders can access learning support with College staff at the Study Hub held after school in the Student Hub.
At Salesian House, Boarders enjoy a spacious common room and recreational area, as well as after-hours access to the school’s new Sports Centre, oval and multi-purpose sport complex.
At Salesian House, all students eat together in a newly refurbished dining room. Catering is provided by an onsite chef. We understand the importance of wholesome and appealing food in the on-going wellbeing of boarders. As well as main meals, students are provided with recess, afternoon tea and supper.
Some of the senior students have individual bedrooms with en-suite facilities, others have dual share rooms, while the junior students have a four-way share room.
Boarding schools are special and boarding at St Mark’s College is unique. As the only 5-day boarding facility in South Australia, we offer that balance between boarding and home.
St Mark’s opens up countless opportunities. Students form lifelong friendships with students from around the state, while also building meaningful and respectful relationships with our staff.
Boarding at St Mark’s provides students with the support to develop productive study habits, the chance to make new friendships and develop in self-confidence, independence and a tolerance and understanding of others. Girls and boys can take full advantage of the breadth of St Mark’s wide ranging activities and learning experiences whilst living in a caring, structured and well supervised environment.
Our core focus centres around student wellbeing, and achieving personal best, while ensuring our boarding environment feels safe and students are cared for. We all come together from wide-ranging backgrounds and cultures, which is what makes living and learning in the Salesian House so unique.
