Building on 150 years of boarding tradition at Prince Alfred College presented by Bradley Fenner, PAC Headmaster.

“The construction of a new, state-of-the-art boarding facility builds on almost 150 years of boarding tradition at Prince Alfred College. Since the day the PAC Main Building was opened in 1869, with boarders living on the top floor, PAC has been acknowledged as a leading boys’ boarding school. The College’s investment in building this new facility, which also expands our campus footprint across The Parade West, indicates our commitment to providing the best possible facilities for our students. We look forward to opening another highly successful chapter in the story of boarding at Prince Alfred College as we complete this new facility.”
