Pupils' Perspectives

Pupil Perspective | Iskandar House Boarder

Boarding is an amazing experience! I would recommend it to all! I love it so much because all of the tutors are amazingly kind and caring, so if you have a problem, they will help you to solve it. Our dorms are wonderful and I love everything about it from the pin-board to the bed to the girls! I share a room with 2 other Year 6 girls. We all get along really well and our dorm is like a mini community! We have activities every night that include climbing, hockey and yoga. The tutors make it so much fun! If you are thinking about joining boarding, I guarantee you will not regret it!

Pupil Perspective | Iskandar House Boarder

I think that Iskandar is a home to many of the girls. I think that all the girls here are most definitely like sisters to me. When I first arrived, I was really nervous and I didn't think that I would fit in but, to my surprise - every single girl wanted to know about my hobbies. I love boarding because all of the girls and the in house tutors are just some of the nicest people that I know. I believe that in your room, you become a lot more closer to (usually) the people in your year because you start to find out a lot about them that maybe if you were a day pupil you wouldn't know. Although in my experience, I found that I am extremely close to one of the shell girls, because she acts as if she is my older sister. I feel as if she is the one person i can go to if I have any issues in school. I love boarding so much. I wonder why I didn't start earlier. I really think that it is an amazing experience that I cannot believe that I missed. I am really extremely happy boarding. As much as I miss my parents, to be honest, I am jam-packed full with activities that I think a day pupil crossing the border probably wouldn't be able to do. Not forgetting, if you start to board, just think about it... you won't have to do your prep on the bus again. And I just think that we get a great amount of liberties. I love boarding.

We always have company, and really fun activities and everyone looks out for you and always listen to any problems you have. When I started I felt unsure but the lovely girls made we so welcome I didn't get worried.

The boarding life in MCM is really fun. We have much more time to spend with our friends here and we can easily ask for a teacher's help for homeworks that we don't know how to do in the boarding house and they would gladly help us. The weekends that we spend here are filled with trips with students from other boarding houses and it is really fun. Overall, the boarding life at MCM is a great and wonderful experience.

Pupil Perspective | Iskandar House Boarder

Boarding in MCM is great fun. You get to learn so many life skills that you need later on in your life. Example, being independent, being responsible for your own things and knowing how to manage your time. All these skills that you learn in MCM are really important. Other than that you get to make so many friends and socialise with different people around you. Boarding is also really relaxing and engaging, after school you get to do different activities, it can be sports, mindfulness, colouring, arts and crafts and so much other fun stuff.
