Hostel Life

Some key aspects of hostel life at a boarding school

      Hostel life in VGS is one of the most memorable experiences that students can have as it serves as a home away from home. VGS has no matrons or wardens. Instead we have the unique ‘house-parent’ system wherein, the faculty also take up the responsibility of ‘house-parenting’. This ensures the effective filling in of the need gap of the parent that is felt by the child making the difficult transition from home to boarding school. The talents of each student are identified and nurtured so that a child’s potential is developed to the maximum. A conducive environment is further provided in the evenings which makes learning and academics a joyful activity. Time spent with the house-parent are special, informal, interactive and sharing sessions; created to come together and discuss myriad things including problems, feelings, the role of and need for values in life, and include on a lighter note, jokes and some good natured banter and a lot more. Children learn to be more confident and independent, while also learning the value of interdependence. They learn to introspect and reflect, developing lasting impressions while remaining grounded to root values. The house-parents’ role includes creating a close bond with the small group of entrusted children who will then thrive under their able guidance and pave the way for their holistic growth thus preparing them for life itself.

  • Living away from home: Hostel life involves living in a dormitory or hostel facility on campus, away from home and family. This can be a challenging adjustment for some students, but it also provides an opportunity to develop independence and self-reliance.
  • Community living: Students who live in hostels at boarding schools typically share a room or living space with one or more other students. This creates a sense of community and encourages social interaction and friendship-building.
  • Supervision and support: Hostel life is typically supervised by residential staff, such as dorm parents or resident advisors, who provide guidance and support to students. This can help students feel safe and supported in their living environment.
  • Structured routine: Hostel life at boarding schools usually involves a structured routine, including set times for meals, study time, and other activities. This routine can help students develop good time management and organizational skills.
  • Social and recreational activities: Hostel life often involves social and recreational activities, such as sports, games, movie nights, and other events. These activities can help students bond with their peers and create a sense of community.
