Boarding at Walford
The start of a new school year is exciting, but it also means our Boarders must say goodbye to the special places they call home. Year 10 Boarder Elsie lives about 150kms from Adelaide and when it’s time to return to Walford there are a few important friends to farewell…….including a special dog named Hope.
