Like home, all floors in the Boarding Houses have common areas. These Common Rooms are across the breezeway on the upper floors and are shared by all residents of the house. In each the young people are able to gather, relax and socialise with others. There is a single-sex policy in place which means the girls and boys do not socialise in each others’ residence. Each Common Room features a kitchen which can be used for making tea, soup, noodles, popcorn and a large comfortable lounge area with TV, along with a quiet reading or games room.
