Our Boarding Establishment 

Boarding is offered from Grade 6 to 12 at St Nicholas. Our children are cared for in a nurturing and structured environment with dedicated staff living on the property to ensure that our boarders are well taken care of.

We strive to create a safe, nurturing environment in which our students can thrive. We offer full-time and weekly boarding, in comfortable and secure facilities. The catering requirements of the boarders are met by the exceptional, and ever-popular, Granny Macs Caterers. As well as termly outings, our boarders participate in the Dusi Park Run weekly and in the RISE Against Hunger Packing monthly.

“We are created as relational beings and the void for fellowship in our lives far exceeds that of materialism. The greatest institution where one learns all the valuable lessons about life has to be one called family. You learn to accept people for the wonderful persons that they are, you are free to make mistakes, to be yourself and to grow into becoming the precious stone you were coined to be. If I was to define St Nicholas using one term, I would say FAMILY. The boarding establishment embodies and epitomises this. It is the soul of the school.”¬†– An excerpt from ‘Peter Sithole: Memoirs of a Boarder Master’
