Girls’ Hostel

Our community will be aware that the school purchased a property in Lloyd Avenue with a view to it becoming a boarding hostel for girl students.

The Mount Albert Grammar School Board of Trustees took possession of the property in March 2017.

The Board have decided that the property at Lloyd Ave will be converted into accommodation for teaching staff. This is in response to the increasing pressure being put on our staff to find affordable accommodation in the Mount Albert area.

The Board will review the situation each year but it is expected we will not be able to offer the property as a girls’ hostel in 2019 or 2020.

The school will keep the community updated with any developments.
