Did you know that St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School in Ascot has once again won the Australian Education Awards Boarding School of the Year?
For the second consecutive year, St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School has been declared the Australian Education Awards Boarding School of the Year. The school, which is located in Ascot, Brisbane, has been operating at capacity for several years, attributing their success and high retention to the inclusive community the school provides for its students.
Integration has always been one of the school’s top priorities, teaching the staff how to perform duties outside of their respective departments. Teachers would know just as much about boarders as boarding staff, and vice versa.
This is especially important for St Margaret’s as the boarding house and their residents play an integral role in the school, and this unity fosters a sense of community and cooperation.
The school itself is owned and operated by the Society of the Sacred Advent Schools Pty Ltd which was founded in 1892. St Margaret’s was founded in 1895, closely following six core values: courage, faith, integrity, passion, respect, and spirit. It is an independent school for day students and boarders, with a total of 810 students from pre-prep to Year 12 — 170 of which are boarders.
The school can be found at 11 Petrie St, Ascot. For more information, visit their website here. Follow their social media pages on Facebook and Instagram for the latest updates and announcements concerning the school.
