Welcome to our Boutique Boarding Village
In 2015, JPC opened its boarding village, the first to offer a unique boarding experience, housing all of our Boarders in a village-style environment. This is far removed from the shadows of the traditional models of dormitories, boarding halls and houses, placing Fenton Village as a ground-breaking boarding experience for the 21st-century student.
The Village is nestled into native bushland neighbouring the Cec Munns Sports Complex, adjacent to the main College campus. Boarders are housed in villa accommodation which accommodates eight students in twin share rooms with ensuites. Fenton Village has its own vegetable gardens and citrus plantation, wireless networks, purpose-built contemporary buildings and recreation and dining halls that embrace the very essence of boarding – spending time with family.
In addition to these creature comforts of the twenty-first-century boarding lifestyle, Boarders are cared for by a team of several residential, academic, catering, medical and support staff, many of whom live on campus. Our staff, who have boarding expertise at senior levels, ensure the highest level of residential care in a safe and nurturing learning environment.
Students are involved in a multitude of co-curricular activities including excellent sporting and performing arts programs. Our Boarding Lifestyle Program also provides Boarders with the opportunity to experience a diverse range of outings and activities around the South East Queensland area.
It is truly amazing to see our young people come together as a community of learners with one goal and purpose – to become global citizens who are proud to be part of the world they live in. I look forward to sharing the year with you and your family.
