The opportunity of living in a hostel environment contributes to your son's well rounded development. Communication, personal and social skills all play a part in building strong lifeskills and relationships in a warm “home away from home” atmospher.
Thomas House boys have a high level of participation in sport and a reputation for involvement in cultural and community activities. Theirs is a special bond, contributing to a justifiably proud school community.
Support from parents - many of whom were former boarders themselves - is strong. Pride in Thomas House and self, now and in the future, is very much a part of boarding at Timaru Boys' High School.
