Why Board at GSG?

Location

GSG is located in an idyllic setting where the mouth of the Kalgan and King Rivers meet Oyster Harbour. The school is positioned 16kms east of the City of Albany on a 144-acre rural setting.

GSG is located in the Great Southern region, close to many boarding students’ homes in farming communities.

The school offers competitive boarding and tuition fees. For more information, please contact Registrar, Mrs Julia Bairstow, on 9844 0307 or via julia.bairstow@gsg.wa.edu.au

Facilities and Services

GSG offers five onsite boarding houses, each providing a homely, caring environment.
Boarders’ rooms are of ample size, with a small number of double rooms for younger boarders.

All boarders have access to ovals, the Multi-Purpose Sport Complex (gymnasium), cricket nets, tennis courts and walk trails.

Full Wi-Fi is available in all boarding houses. 

We offer online transport and leave booking via REACH, as well as lunch orders via Flexischools.

Staff and our Standards

GSG employs caring, family-oriented staff with a low staff to student ratio. Our staff is trained in Duty of Care as determined by the Australian Boarding Schools Association (ABSA). 

GSG is a member of ABSA which represents 98 per cent of Australian boarding schools. GSG operates under the National Standards for Boarding Australia.

Transport

Transport requests are booked and activated online.

We provide a bus service to take boarders to and from their sporting commitments (training and games), medical appointments, cultural events and shopping, during the week and on weekends. 

A bus run (Jerramungup and Pingrup Bus Service) provides drop-offs and pickups on Boarders’ Closed Weekends, to the outlying regions of Albany.

Medical

The school offers a purpose-built Health Centre for boarders to make morning and after-school visits in regards to illness or injury.

Nursing staff arranges medical appointments on behalf of boarders, and day staff takes boarders to their appointments during school hours.

The GSG Boarding Lifestyle

GSG Boarding is a clean, secure, safe and friendly community for all boarders and staff. We offer a range of services to ensure students lead active and happy hours during their stay.

  • A Recreation Officer provides weekend activities for boarders on alternate weekends and during the school week.
  • Students access a well-equipped kitchen in each house to prepare food and drinks outside Dining Hall operating hours.
  • The school employs a healthy eating policy.
  • Weekly tutoring and academic support are offered after school. These services are included in the boarding/tuition fee.
