Harrow International School Bengaluru‘s boarding students have been excited to move into their state-of-the-art boarding accommodation on the school campus, following the opening of the school this month. 60% of students enrolled for the first year are residential students at Harrow Bengaluru, so the boarding houses have been full of activity as many new friendships have been built over the past few days. The boarding houses are superbly equipped with multiple common rooms for recreation and libraries for studying.
Students from Grade 6 to Grade 9 have twin sharing rooms whereas students from Grade 10 upwards have their own single room with en-suite bathroom. Students also have access to an in-house kitchen, an on-site nurse and adjacent laundry facilities.
The lamp was lit by the Head Master and the Director of Pastoral Care Mr. Saurav Sinha addressed all the students who attended the inauguration ceremony. The ribbon was cut by the youngest boarder, and sweets were distributed, after which a buzz ensued throughout the evening at the boarding premises as students moved in with all their belongings and books. Resident House Masters, House Mistresses and the entire pastoral care committee welcomed the boarders, who are already taking full advantage of the academic, sporting and co-curricular opportunities which come with their onsite living.
