HOME AWAY FROM HOME
Living away from home and residing on campus in a dorm setting provides invaluable opportunities for personal growth. Boarding school students tend to develop life skills such as time management, work ethic, and independence in an accelerated manner than a public-school student.
The Hostel is a place where they can rest, research, sleep or just hang out. It’s a social space for them, a place for building interactions.
When you live and learn together in a community, you motivate and grow together, too.
At The Aryan School, we have separate hostels for boys and girls. Houseparents are always accessible to provide guidance to students.
The companionship here is real, and the buddies made in the hostel will be some of the best in their life a student will ever have.
Generally there are 4 to 8 students in each dorm. The hostel has modern washrooms (toilet and bathing cells). Cleanliness is maintained by the Sahayikas on duty.
The hostel comprises of a study hall where students study at night. Monitoring students in smaller groups and the personal care of each student is practiced with commitment and affection. Students have free time on weekends to watch T.V., listen to music, read books and magazines in the Common room of their respective hostels.
Each hostel provides an amiable atmosphere and pollution-free environment, conducive to the mental, physical and spiritual development of the students and help them to become self-reliant. The Houseparents look after the emotional needs of the students. She is a mentor and a guide steering the students towards character formation. The Houseparents provides motherly care and affection and look after the basic needs of the children.
The Dean of Pastoral Care is involved with all facets of a student’s life. She is a disciplinary authority and a considerate counsel. She motivates and inspires the students to better themselves in all aspects of school life.
Learning and living among a diverse group of peers has the potential to lead to disagreements. Yet this dynamic paves the way for broadened world views and social maturity. Students learn valuable life lessons about connection and conflict. As a result, they’re often more socially prepared and ready to embrace a world full of different people with contrasting points of view.
Thus, The Aryan School offers a unique opportunity for students to deep-dive into learning and community.
