A new house at Howqua


Raised so far


Number of donors




This year, marks the 30th anniversary of the Howqua campus, a home away from home for Lauriston students in Year 9. Come together with the Lauriston community as we celebrate 30 incredible years and embark on a mission to raise $300,000 for a new house at Howqua

We owe immense gratitude to the visionary founders who recognised the potential of connecting students with nature, fostering resilience and growth. Their commitment has deeply impacted generations of Howquarians. In fact, the first four houses were funded by parents who believed in Lauriston's vision even before their daughters experienced Howqua. 

The success of Howqua now demands a new horizon. Howqua needs a new home to accommodate the growing demand due to increasing student enrolments. This cherished campus has been a second home for many Lauriston students, and it is now time to enable the same life-changing experience for our future generations. 

Over three decades, we have witnessed young women flourish, forge unbreakable bonds, and unlock their true potential at Howqua. Our program instills independence, resilience, and a strong sense of community.

As we celebrate our 30th anniversary, we reflect on the incredible impact Howqua has had. By making a tax-deductible donation, you will continue this legacy and create even more life- changing opportunities for the future generations of Lauriston students at Howqua.
