Harlin House

Harlin House is staffed by a vibrant and energetic team, who are passionate about the boys' education, and their care and welfare.

Our Director of Boarding, Berian Williams-Jones , is usually the first point of contact for parents, while Mr Nick Byron, as Head of Residence, is in charge of the day to day running of the House.

House staff:

  • Berian Williams-Jones  Director of Boarding

  • Glynis Faucett – Housemother
  • Alex Hastie  Housemother

Fifteen house t​utors look after the boys in a variety of roles. Most of the staff that look after the working day are teachers at Brisbane Grammar School. They engage with the boys at a number of levels but will actively supervise and support boarders in their academic work. Four residential tutors provide overnight and weekend supervision of the house, whilst three further staff enable the activity program and contribute generally to the community.

Harlin House has a medical centre within the building that is attended by qualified staff 24 hours a day, throughout the week. The Health Centre manages the needs of all boarders and liaises with parents regarding immediate and on-going treatments, and with routine appointments.

Our Catering Manager, together with input from the school dietician, ensure the boys enjoy a good quality menu full of variety. Boarders have an active voice in the process through the Food Committee and an annual survey ensures their views and needs are heard. The Dining Room provides early or late meals to fit in with boys' schedules, as well as packed lunch for excursions and off-site activities.

Our housemothers, helps all of the boarders, but especially the juniors, with their domestic routines. They oversee laundry, shower times and general organisation, and provide a maternal influence for the younger members of the house.​​​
