Academic Enrichment

Our boarders are taught by experienced and expert teachers during prep time in a program that aligns to the boys’ assessment schedules. All key subject areas – Maths, English, Humanities and Science – are covered. Each learning workshop runs for forty minutes and takes place in the fantastically well-resourced Lilley Centre. There are also micro teaching sessions covering Physics, Economics, Geography, Biology and Senior History. Years 7 and 8 boarders also benefit from the Harlin House Homework Club, which tackles any problems the boys are having with the night’s homework.

For the most inquisitive of our senior boarding minds, membership of the Harlin House Helios Society extends their cultural and academic experiences. Trips to GoMA, debates at the State Library, theatre workshops at the Brisbane Powerhouse, poetry readings, and excursions to thought-provoking film and discussion sessions are just some of the activities Helios members explore throughout the year.
