Students may board or live in a homestay situation if their parents are not living in Christchurch. It is necessary to have an English-speaking parent representative. It is the responsibility of the student and his family to make provisions for the term holidays and for mid-term breaks.
The location of St Bede’s in Christchurch also allows many opportunities in the great outdoors. There are a number of golf courses close to the College and ski fields are less than two hours away. The photo below, shows a student taking part in a weekend guided walk.
