This is aimed at building responsible and reliable young adults and potential parents.
Home front leadership coaching in our boarding programme is structured to raise responsible home managers and potential leaders. This is achieved through our leadership pieces of training and skill acquisition platforms infused into the job roles of our room heads, table heads, and prefects. They are all groomed early as students, to take individual and collective responsibilities and delegate the same. The close monitoring, mentorship and supervision provided by our team of professional boarding staff, makes this achievable.

The concept of parenting and hostel care rests on the fact that children have needs, and these needs must be met to protect the well-being of the child. And it is important that responsible adults and suitable structures are available to meet these needs.
There are many reasons why boarding might be an attractive option for children. It is viewed as an option for parents with busy schedules, however, the boarding experience should be seen by all as an integral part of a child’s education. It enhances independence and allows young people to make some of their own decisions.
