Outside Spaces: The hostel is focussed on our central courtyard but has many other outdoor recreation and leisure spaces within the boundaries.

Sport and Cultural Facilities: The hostel is located on the boundary of the 32 hectare Molyneux Park and is a short 2 minute walk from school. It enjoys a campus feel with nearly all of the town major sporting facilities within the park. This includes the heated indoor and outdoor swimming pool, the sports grounds for all major sports such as athletics, rugby, cricket, netball, hockey, squash and tennis. Also within this precinct are the ice rink, youth centre, school gymnasium and public stadium, music and performing arts centre, skate park, golf course and Otago Central Rail Trail.

Our mission is to provide a safe, family-like living environment, where what we do supports student learning, and the wellbeing of every child is at the centre of our actions.
