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.
