Leichhardt House Student Hostel (the Hostel) is governed by Chinchilla Student Accommodation Association Inc. (CSAA); the primary function of CSAA is to take responsibility for the business issues associated with the Hostel. The CSAA Management Committee is responsible for defining and realising benefits for all Hostel stakeholders, monitoring risks, quality, and timeliness, approving budgetary strategy and helping balance the ongoing conflict between needs, priorities, and resources.
At the Hostel, our core role in education is to support isolated families from across the Western Downs region of Southern Queensland, by enabling their children to attend a mainstream school. Only through providing high quality physical infrastructure and employing qualified and experienced, professional, staff, can we encourage our community to move away from the trend towards urban boarding schools and ensure the existence of local farmers, professionals and tradespersons of the future by
‘.... keeping Kids in the Country’.
Our open enrolment policy means that qualifying boarders will be accepted into the Hostel regardless of race, religion, disability, educational needs, or the school they wish to attend. However, due to being a relatively small operation there are a number of variables which may impact on an application; in particular the potential changes in Hostel 'dynamics'.
To this end we highly recommend that prospective boarders express an interest in a position at the Hostel as early as possible. The first stage being to complete and submit the enrolment application below.
