The major redevelopment of Harlin House, Brisbane Grammar School’s senior boarding house, started in April and is part of the transformation of boarding facilities at the School.
The design will provide exceptional living spaces for boarders in Years 9 to 12, with 81 private student rooms and new spaces for study and social activities. Harlin House is expected to be ready for students to move in for the start of Term 4 2021.
The redevelopment represents stage two of the School’s ongoing commitment to BGS Boarding, with stage one being the creation of Griffith House for junior boarders, which opened in May 2020. Quality accommodation complements the School’s leading Boarding program.
Griffith House provides a dedicated facility for 18 Middle School boarders. Boys have an individual room that exists within a dorm, giving them both privacy and connectedness.
BGS thanks the Parents and Friends' Auxiliary and Old Boy Matthew McLennan ’86 for their generous contributions to the School’s boarding redevelopment projects.
