Head of Girls Boarding • Ms Rachel Rapsey

0419 979 577

Rachel embarked on a Bachelor of Social Science (Psychology) to pursue an interest in working with teenagers, but she only realised that goal when she started as a casual assistant in Scots Boarding in 2019.

Now with her recent appointment as Head of Girls Boarding, Rachel is finally influencing young lives in the way she envisioned all those years ago.

Since Rachel started at Scots, she has shown a deep commitment to making the Boarding environment as homely and welcoming as possible, fully aware that homesickness is the biggest challenge for boarders to overcome.
