Boarding Establishment

Howick Prep Boarding Establishment is our "home from home" for weekly boarders in Grades 3- 7.  The hostel is conveniently situated on the school premises and caters for both local children and those from out of the area.  There are five resident staff members in the BE who are responsible for the well-being of the children during the day and at night.

We offer our children a comfortable, loving environment with a structured daily routine, at the same time keeping it relaxed and cosy. We have a daily duty staff member to assist and guide the children, and to entertain them in the evenings. Prep time is a supervised and quiet time, allowing the children to give of their best and to ask for assistance where needed.

Our hostel superintendent, Mrs Sue van Rensburg, provides us with three well-balanced and yummy meals each day, with tea-times inbetween.  There is also a full laundry service.  She also takes care those children who are not feeling so good, and offers in-house counselling where needed.

We have a lovely garden equipped with jungle gyms, basket ball nets, a sandpit and equipment for all ball games. The dorms provide the children with cubicles and a lock-up bed-side locker. The children personalise their spaces with their own duvets, fluffy toys and pictures.

We are one big happy family in our “home from home” boarding establishment.
