Boarding life is the heart of MIS and boarding staff play a pivotal role in the pastoral, social and emotional well being of their students. The boarding team is headed by the Principal who is supported by highly qualified and skilled teaching and residential staff, including the Housemothers, Assistant Housemothers and a range of support staff.
There are three boarding houses, Gayatri, Santoshi and Laxmi. Each child is under the supervision and care of a Boarding Housemother responsible for her specific age group. Each purpose-built boarding house provides modern amenities including attractive bedrooms accommodating five-eight students, superb bath and shower facilities, comfortable common and recreational rooms, a quiet area and a Library.
In boarding we provide a home away from home where we maintain traditional values in a family atmosphere. We develop in the whole child a desire for truth, decorum, courtesy and high-achievement. These values are the cornerstones of success.
We provide an environment whereby students can develop their intellectual talents in an atmosphere of positive encouragement and in conditions that are conducive to work. Daily prep is well-structured, supervised, orderly and silent.
We encourage students to participate in activities in an atmosphere which values effort.
We provide a broad range of club activities, hobbies and Sunday activities related to age and maturity that will assist in the personal, social and cultural development of each student. These may include inter-house competitions, instrumental and vocal music, drama, speech and debate, visits to the theatre, festivals, talent fiesta, formal dinners with the Principal, overnight cultural trips, camping, trekking and outward-bound experiences, cricket, basketball, soccer, tennis, swimming, snooker, billiards, TT, badminton, weight-training and athletics to mention but a few activities on offer.
