Ad Astra Hostel

Ad Astra Hostel is the boarding facility for Whanganui Girls’ College. It is operated by Rivercity Asset Management Ltd. Barry & Joanne Codlin, the directors of the company, are also employed as the Ad Astra Hostel managers.

Ad Astra Hostel offers care and accommodation for up to 120 girls. The communal nature of boarding life necessitates the establishment of certain rules and procedures to ensure the provision of the best care possible for the girls in their charge and the smooth operation of the household.

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.

Life in Ad Astra Hostel complements the broad principles of Whanganui Girls’ College, where we aim to provide the best education, ensuring each girl reaches her potential and is prepared for the multitude of challenges and opportunities which life presents. Ad Astra Hostel life encourages high standards and provides a positive environment for academic studies. There are also varied opportunities to participate in sport and many other co-curricular activities.

The Ad Astra staff and current Boarders look forward to welcoming the new Boarders and their families into our community. We are confident you will find the association between Whanganui Girls’ College and the Ad Astra Hostel a rewarding and enjoyable experience.
