Boarders at Walford come from all parts of rural South Australia and across Australia. International students choose to study and board at Walford, and include students from Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Japan and Korea.
Local families are welcome to take advantage of weekly or short-term boarding opportunities. When parents need to travel abroad or interstate for periods of time, or on occasions of sudden need, the Walford Boarding House can offer temporary accommodation for your daughter(s). Girls are cared for by our professional boarding staff and enjoy the company of their "sisters" in a safe, warm and modern facility. Boarding is available for girls from Year 6 to Year 12.

In recognition of Boarders’ Week at Walford, our blog post features a video showcasing the wide range of places our boarders call home.

A special thanks to Keisha, one of our boarding students, who compiled the video.
