Hermitage residence caters for 34 Year 9 boarders. Located in St Chamond, 40 minutes south west of Lyon, ‘The Hermitage’ is the spiritual home of the Marist Brothers. Built by Saint Marcellin Champagnat and the early brothers as a training and retreat house, The Hermitage still stands today.
Hermitage residence is spread across a single level, located directly above the Year 8 Montagne residence completing the Years. 7-9 boarding precinct.
The focus for the boys in Hermitage residence is to lead by example. Geographically situated above the Years 7 & 8 boarders provides concrete opportunities for our Year 9 boarders to demonstrate key Marist characteristics of simplicity, love of hard work, presence, in the way of Mary and family spirit.
Hermitage residence is coordinated by Mr Luke Caplick. Luke facilitates a challenging, rewarding and fun environment that prepares our Year 9 boys extraordinarily well for the important transition into Year 10.
