Haileybury Kormilda Boarding will consist of three boarding houses whose names are drawn from traditional Larrakia words. The Larrakia people are the traditional owners of the Darwin region.
Dewarra, pronounced ‘Du-wah-rra’ is the Larrakia name for spider. Opened in January 2018, this is the School's newly refurbished boarding facility and is home to up to 80 Aboriginal students from remote areas. The Dewarra dormitory has both individual and shared rooms, and communal areas that include a reception, common rooms, games room, music room, computer rooms, kitchens and outdoor areas, including fire pits, ponds and gym equipment.

Gumimba, pronounced 'Goo-mimba' is the Larrakia name for the freshwater crocodile (Crocodylus johnstoni). This facility will be refurbished by the end of 2018 ready for the 2019 School Year.
