The hostel is truly a model for nurturing a sound body and steady mind for the students. It is self-sufficient in all respects and geared to take care of every need of the student. The various kinds of services provided for the students inside the hostel premises itself are as below:

Medical facilities: The health of the children is adequately watched over in the hostel. It has a well-equipped dispensary under the care of a professional Medical Practitioner. No stone is left unturned when it comes to the physical well being of any child.  The students are periodically examined by E.N.T., Eye and Dental specialists.

Multi-purpose Hall: The School Hostel would like to have an airy and versatile hall, which will be used for various purposes. It will serve as a Dining Hall, Prayer Hall as well as a Performance Hall for various extra-curricular and co-curricular activities of the hostel.

Other in-house facilities: The School Hostel has a future plan to provide a number of other in-house services to make the stay of the student at the hostel a pleasant experience. They would include -

1.    A student plaza and a general stores stocking every possible item, from pencils and pins to buckets and bags, as may be required by the students.
2.    A library and reading room with a variety collection of general knowledge and children story books apart from comics and other light reading material.
3.    An audio-visual parlour to provide wholesome entertainment on weekends and on other special occasions.
4.    A computer room with Internet connectivity and multimedia facility with restricted access.
5.    A telephone booth with multiple land lines for incoming as well as outgoing calls.
6.    For artistically inclined students the hostel has ample facilities to pursue their interests of painting, drawing, etc. in their leisure time.
7.    For boys keen on indoor games like carom, chess, etc., the hostel has spacious patios.

Other than these, the hostel has special rooms and people employed for services like laundry, saloon, etc.

A cultured Code of Conduct is a time-honoured and cherished tradition of the hostel. Every student is exhorted to observe the rules and regulations whole-heartedly and in right spirit.

  1. Each student is expected to sincerely practice obedience and reverence to teachers and elders, Humility is the hallmark of a good student. Mutual courtesy and gentlemanly behaviour also is as important as it will promote peace and harmony among the students.
  2. Students are expected to wear dress prescribed by the school and maintain short and well-groomed hairstyle. The students are not supposed to sport moustache, beard.
  3. Voluntarily maintaining silence during mass gatherings like assembly, in dining hall, inside classroom, inside chapel / Prayer room, hostel, etc. is expected from every student. Indulging in loud talk and idle chat is inexcusably condemned.
  4. Punctuality is a must in the disciplined life pattern at the hostel. All students are expected to be in time for all sessions whether in school or in the hostel.
  5. Leaving the hostel premises for any reason other than attending School and Chapel / Prayer, without explicit permission from the Headmaster / warden is not encouraged. Overnight stay outside the hostel is forbidden.
  6. In the event of a student's presence being absolutely required at home, other than during the vacation, he/she should furnish the following to the Head Master / Warden along with the leave application:
    • a) The requisition letter from the parent. 
    • b) Permission letter from the School authority / the Doctor-in-charge (in case, it is for health reasons).
    • The Warden, then, at his discretion may permit the student to go home and return to the hostel within the stipulated time.
  7. Parents / guardians alone are permitted to meet their wards between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Sundays only and not on any other holiday. No visitor is permitted to meet any student on working days.
  8. Personal possession of Iron box, tape recorder or transistor, video games, mobile phones or any other electronic items, etc. is not allowed in the hostel.
  9. All students are required to maintain high standard of personal cleanliness and room cleanliness as well as the cleanliness of the surroundings.
  10. Students are not encouraged to keep any ready cash or valuables with them.

Any breach of the rules and regulations mentioned above is not tolerated. The hostel and school authorities reserve the right to expel any student from the hostel and the school at any time of the year if his/her behaviour is found wanting.

We have a dream to create a wonderful facet of the hostel that all the services within the hostel are all manned and managed by the students themselves. Whether it is managing the general stores and fruit stall, hostel library and the reading room, serving in the dinning hall, maintaining the dietary kitchen, looking after the hostel garden, running the weekend entertainment presentations, looking after the upkeep of the prayer hall, Chapel or any other service, boys are encouraged to voluntarily take up some responsibility as per their liking and interests. It serves to infuse in them the virtues of service, co-operation and dignity of labour, besides providing them invaluable work experience.
