BOARDING LIFE

“Boarding at Iona has been such an important part in shaping the people we have become…
​​​​​​​it is the most practical gift our parents could have given us” 

​​​​​​​Iona Old Girls, Gisborne

THE IONA BOARDING HOUSE IS A FLOURISHING COMMUNITY WHERE LEARNING, PERSONAL GROWTH
AND EXPLORATION ARE OUR TOP PRIORITIES.

Director of Boarding Welcome

​​​​​​​Iona College has an excellent reputation for pastoral care. We believe that girls perform best when they are happy and secure, and we have systems in place to ensure this.​​​​​​​ 

​​​​​​​Their psychological wellbeing is every bit as important to us as their physical health.

WEEKEND ACTIVITIES


Boarders have access to our extensive grounds and facilities after school and on weekends.

The Boarding House is an active environment with girls regularly enjoying outings to the markets, the beach, the cinema and the theatre as well as visits to the surrounding towns and local attractions.

Regular activities also occur with other boarding schools.
