Haileybury Kormilda Boarding has three boarding houses whose names are drawn from traditional Larrakia words. The Larrakia people are the traditional owners of the Darwin region.
In early 2018 a number of the boarding facilities will be refurbished to give our students the highest standard of modern accommodation. All accommodation includes shared common areas, twin and quad share rooms and multiple bed dormitories for males and females.
Galangwa, pronounced ‘Gull-an-gwa’, is the Larrakia name for the Bloodwood Tree (Eucalyptus bleeseri).
Dewarra, pronounced ‘Du-wah-rra’ is the Larrakia name for spider.
Gumimba, pronounced 'Goo-mimba' is the Larrakia name for the freshwater crocodile (Crocodylus johnstoni).
What to Bring
The School provides pillows, towels and bed linen but students can bring their own if preferred. Each room has fixed beds, ceiling fan, study desk with chair and wardrobe. A television is provided in each common room. No televisions are allowed in individual rooms; however, portable stereo systems are permitted.
The School Shop and Canteen is open on school days for extended hours. It sells a variety of items including uniforms, stationery, personal items, canteen food and drinks. The Shop operates in addition to the main dining hall, the Mayuma Room.
