Waterloo House (Hostel)

  • Introduction
  • We offer Weekly and Termly boarding at Wynberg Girls’ High School. Our hostel, Waterloo House, is situated within the school grounds to ensure that boarders have complete access to all our school facilities and activities. The hostel can house approximately seventy girls from Grade Eight to Grade Twelve.

    Waterloo House has recently outsourced its catering management, cleaning coordination and procurement to a professional outsourced food and services solutions company called Feedem Pitseng. Feedem looks at the youth of today and, in consultation with dieticians, provide nutritionally balanced meals daily for active youths.

    Hostel girls have single bedrooms and there are a few rooms available for sharing. The rooms are quaint, wooden-floored and fully furnished. The atmosphere of the hostel is lively, modern and upbeat. There is a sense of unity and warmth amongst the girls.

    The hostel staff include; the kitchen staff, who prepare three meals and two teas a day, four Boarder Mistresses, two matrons and a Hostel Superintendent. The Girls’ High school principal, Mrs Shirley Harding, oversees the hostel.

    Life in the hostel is both pleasant and exciting.

    Some of the benefits of boarding at Waterloo House are:

    • Supervised study on a daily basis.
    • All meals are provided including school lunch.
    • There are organised, supervised outings for the termly boarders.
    • The weekly boarders have the option to be collected after school on a Friday and to be dropped off on Sunday evening by 8pm or by 7.30am on a Monday morning.

    Termly boarders have 2 compulsory out weekends a term.

    The girls who board become independent, mature young women.

    The experiences in hostel are skills learnt for life. Girls will develop a significant number of personal, social and leadership skills. Hostel life at Waterloo House is an experience.
