We are your daughter’s home away from home and so we strive to support her in all areas of her life.
Pastoral support is readily available through the boarding house staff. We also foster strong peer networks so the girls can seek support and friendship amongst their fellow boarders.
KRB boarding boasts an Integrated Leadership Model where teachers are integrated within the boarding staff. This allows students to have academic support in their homework sessions and during weekends. Boarders can also arrange private consultations with teachers and tutors if they require further academic support.
The KRB homework and study centre is available to all KRB boarders to enhance their learning. Our boarders have access to a range of modern learning resources both in the homework and study centre and in the boarding house.
The whole campus, including the library, is available to boarders until 8.30pm every day.
KRB’s HSC Class of 2021 was ranked 28th in the state by the Sydney Morning Herald and the School was the top performing independent Catholic boarding school in NSW.
The Boarders from the Year 12 Class of 2021 showcased great results with 56% achieving an ATAR above 90, and 68% achieving an ATAR above 80.
At KRB we focus on the personal and academic growth of our students. Each year, we recognise students who show the greatest academic growth in their learning. This year 3 out of 7 students who were awarded this, were boarders from rural NSW.

Health and Wellbeing
The health and wellbeing of our Boarders are our main priority. The Health Care Centre (HCC) is open 8am-7:30pm from Monday to Thursday and 8am-5pm on Fridays during the school term. The HCC is run by the KRB School Nurse. All boarders have access to the HCC for any health concerns.
A program of healthy and inclusive activities weeknights and weekends is offered to boarders to encourage healthy habits.
Leadership within the KRB boarding house is something we encourage our boarders to aspire to.
Led by a Year 12 Head Boarder and the Head of Boarding SRC, our Boarding School Student Representative Council is made up of members from each year group.
We also offer additional opportunities for boarders of all year groups to advocate on behalf of their peers as members of the Food Committee. They can also participate in building and sharing faith practice as members of the Liturgy Committee. Year 11 boarders self-nominate for the role of Big Sister, an integral role within the boarding community that promotes supportive friendship, advocacy and wellbeing amongst boarders.
