Each weeknight after dinner the junior boarders study in year level groups in the school library and classrooms, while seniors study in their rooms. Study is supervised by teachers who provide assistance as required. All boarders are part of the College laptop program and have appropriate access to the College IT facilities.

During weekends there is a range of activities in which the boarders can participate including social activities with other boarding schools and trips to AFL matches, movies, shopping, Qasar, ten-pin bowling, indoor rock climbing and speedway. Many boarders also participate in weekend and after school sporting teams including AFL, cricket, hockey, basketball, soccer, tennis, kickboxing, archery and rugby.  Some boarders also join scouts, cadets and swimming clubs.
