SJMIS Boarding is more than a place where students sleep at the end of a busy day. The boarding environment brings students to new learning experiences and develops their ability to make personal choices that will enhance their personal growth and maturity. Students learn to appreciate consideration, co-operation, independence and how to live with others in a supportive environment. Whether through the sporting activities, weekend activity, monthly birthday event, or daily interaction with peers and adults, boarding students make lifelong friends and learn important life skills in the process. Best of all, some of the most memorable, positive, and fun experiences happen within the dormitories.
