The Hostel at Victoria Primary School is a home away from home for both weekly and termly boarders from both near and far. The hostel sleeps 50 girls from Grade 1 to 7 in attractive surroundings in the buildings of the old convent.
The beautiful dining hall was once a chapel, complete with stained glass windows and church pews for chairs. Junior girls from Grades 1 to 5 sleep in dormitories, where each girl has her own cubicle, cupboards, a bed and a desk. The Grade 6 and 7 girls are fortunate enough to have their own rooms. The Hostel Hub is an activity room where the boarders enjoy crafts, table tennis, games and movies.
Three Matrons and six Duty Teachers are responsible for the daily care of our boarders. This results in an adult to child ratio of six children to an adult, meaning no child goes unnoticed.
During the week boarders follow the greater school programme, with the added bonus of supervised homework in the afternoons for Grades 1 – 4 and supervised homework in the evenings for Grades 4 – 7. On weekends, the girls who remain in hostel are entertained with a variety of activities, including ball games, fashion shows, talent contests, swimming and Sunday School.
