The overarching aim of the Hostel is to provide a secure and caring environment in which the girls will grow and develop academically, socially, physically and morally.
Like any home, a sense of co‐operation comes from shared aims, a concern for others and a sense of solidarity. This co‐operation extends to areas such as assisting in running social events, sporting events, Hostel duties, homework and ensuring rooms are clean and tidy.
