Boarders Study Habits
The sound of the end of school bell is for most people a sound of beauty, teachers and students a like. However that bell does not mean the end of work for either and the knowledge of the need to do homework is rarely one of anticipation and excitement. The battle to get your child to do homework and the personal drive from the student to complete set work can often cause strain on a relationship. Living in a boarding school community can provide advantages in this area.
- Access– access to the school library, internet and technology, access to forgotten resources, class mates (for those times you accidentally forget to write your homework down).
- Study partners– for most students in boarding it is highly likely that you will be living with people that you share classes with, this means that there is always help. Also the added advantages of older students who have not only done that class, but had that teacher and unlike most adults can still remember doing that type of Maths.
- Teachers– At TIS our boarding study program has the assistance of supervision by school teachers meaning you have immediate and one on one access to teachers outside of class time.
- Environment– Study/homework time is part of the daily routine for our boarding students, which leads to practise study habits. Our study is done in the school library with up to date computers and a quiet environment, so students are given time and opportunity to study. (with the hope that this will lead to effective managment of their time to do further study as needed)
