Winter Boarding (Term 3 Only)
Pending availability of places, SMGS accepts winter only boarders. With both the Thredbo and Perisher resorts only 25 minutes away, this enable students to have a unique winter school experience in the foothills of the mountains, with regular access to the snowfields while maintaining their academic learning.
Term 3 boarders have the option of appling for our elite snowsports program with over 50 days on snow, while still attending regular classes and tutorial sessions throughout the term.
Alternatively, boarders can participate in our regular snowsports program, with up to 3 days on snow each week. Students still have 4 full school days on campus each week, meaning they don’t miss any school work. Students of all snowsports levels are welcome in this program, from complete beginners, through to intermediate and advanced snowsports athletes.
Students are transported to and from the ski fields, each Wednesday, as part of the normal school winter program which includes a minimum 4 hour, instructor led lesson. Lesson groups comprise SMGS students only and the groups remain together all season. On weekends, the boarding house provides transport for students, to and from Perisher for free skiing. Students also have the option of remaining in the boarding house to catch up on school work, relax or spend time with visiting friends and family.
