ESSE QUAM VIDERI

Welcome to Munawir Hill

Housemaster Munawir Hill

 

Munawir Hill was the College’s First Senior Boys’ House, opening in September 2012. In its’ short history, Munawir has developed to become a home where its boarder’s form strong friendships, work hard and grow into responsible, informed and well-balanced young men.

Our motto, Esse Quam Videri (to be, not to seem to be), guides our boarders towards doing the right things for the right reasons. Munawir Hill is made great by the genuine nature of our interactions: companionship with peers, contribution to our community and courage and commitment in our work.

With my wife, Naomi, and our three children, Leila, Alannah and Jonah, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Munawir Hill.

Pupils' Perspectives

Pupil Perspective | Munawir Hill Boarder

I like the weekend activities and the multitude of opportunities that the school provides outside of the classroom. Not only do I feel inclusive, but also feel that my time is spent productively. It enhances my organisational skills as well as learning to adapt to people with different cultural backgrounds and enveloping myself in a whole new environment. By being a boarder, not only can you become better academically; you can especially become a better and more well-rounded person. Ultimately, a boarding life equips us better with life skills needed for our future.

The boarding experience in Munawir is a lively, vibrant environment. Sharing a house with great people from around the world gives a great opportunity to view opinions from different parts of the world. The boarding experience in Marlborough is always changing with activities offered and new people joining the houses. Being in Munawir feels like having a family. The boundary of different year groups is not present in our house as all of the boys in Munawir are mixing and together.

Pupil Perspective | Munawir Hill Boarder

There are so many different aspects to boarding life, and while it can be daunting, it can also end up being one the most rewarding experiences you could ever have, and I would do nothing but encourage you to do it. While there are lots of reasons why you could consider boarding, I think the best, and most important aspect of boarding life is plain and simple: being with your friends. Ultimately, just being with my friends, through thick and thin, is without a doubt the best part of it. Times may be tough, exams may be stressful, but you have constantly got the people you live with to talk to, complain to, laugh with, and form, in my opinion, some of the strongest bonds you could ever have.

The multiple activities that are available, both sporting and academic, that occur during the week and on the weekends. The weekend activities such as zorbing or lunches like the Jen Hotel. The boarding life is fun as it gives optimal support in the house to push each other further, for example, Academic, testing each other and peer tutoring, or Activities like rugby or football.
