Misplaced apostrophe's

As a former pupil of St Patrick's College, Silverstream, I read with interest in today's death notices that a memorial service was being held this Friday for the late Father Peter Blake, a well-liked priest who was there in my time.

What caught my eye was that the after-match function was to be held in "the Boarder's dining room". I was well aware that the number of boarders had substantially diminished since my time, but didn't realise it was now down to one.
