Hostel Infrastructure and Facilities
The Madras Christian College School Hostel caters to the needs of students from different parts of the world. It has been serving the student community for several years. The hostel student community is cosmopolitan in nature. Different activities and programmes are organised to make hostel life more interesting and meaningful. The overall development gained by the children enables them to face the world later, with courage and confidence.
The hostel pupils are expected to observe the rules and regulations of the hostel. These rules have been framed, having in mind that obedience is the first step to progress.
Life in the hostel can be pleasant and enjoyable if each student is prepared to co-operate and make the necessary adjustments. The hostel is not a place where the personal demands of students can be satisfied. All the necessary facilities have been provided to make the hostel an enjoyable place to live in.
The rules and regulations that are mentioned here in this prospectus must be obeyed. All other instructions that will be issued during the course of academic year must also be followed.
There are three hostels namely:
- Junior Hostels for students of Stds. 6, 7 and 8
- Senior Hostel for students of Stds. 9 & 10
- Super Senior Hostel for students of Stds. 11 & 12 (Kuruvila Hostel)
Highly qualified teachers work as wardens in the hostel. They look after the hostelers, organise activities, help the boys in their studies and conduct UNIT TESTS every week. A qualified physical education teacher is incharge of games activities.
The Hostel Superintendent, Mr. G.J. Manohar lives in the Junior Hostel building.
