Learning in Residence

Boarding returns to Wesley

Boarding has been an integral and important part of Wesley’s offering since its founding in 1866. I am delighted that we are re-introducing a residential experience that reflects the contemporary educational and developmental needs of young people.

Learning in Residence

Wesley is establishing Learning in Residence, a residential facility to be built adjacent to the Senior School on the Glen Waverley campus, and which will open in 2016. This exciting, multipurpose, Years 10-12, residential development will provide a real-life context for holistic experiential learning and builds on the rich history of such residential experiences at Wesley – a century of boarding, decades of Outdoor Education and the highly acclaimed residential learning programs in Clunes and Yiramalay. 

Learning in Residence

Learning in Residence has been designed to further enhance learning in the senior years and will again provide students - locally, nationally and internationally - with the benefits of an outstanding Wesley residential education. It will be a dynamic and diverse community providing a vibrant and safe environment that will stimulate the intellectual, emotional, physical, social, cultural and spiritual development of the students in residence. 

To ensure that the best possible facilities are built for our boarders, and offset some of the considerable borrowings for this major project, we are seeking to raise $4m through deductible gifts to the Wesley College Foundation Building Fund.
