Why should I put my child in a boarding school?
Residential schools mainly serve the purposes of a wide exposure and help develop personal qualities like confidence, public-speaking skills, secular outlook, independence, strong character etc. which are so important for success in adult life. Pupils at boarding school do not face the problems of traffic and poor public transport; they can use the time saved to do worthwhile activities. Academic lessons do not have to be crammed between 9am and 4pm: they can be spread over a longer period with breaks for sport and other activities. The volume of sport, music, acting, hobbies and other creative activities is far greater at a boarding than a day school. Boarding pupils thrive in the life of a busy community. They learn to adjust better, have high regard for and tolerate others, learn community living, become truly secular in their outlook, gather a high degree of independence which is invaluable when they go on to taste life for themselves.
