Welcome to boarding at St. John’s.

We are excited that you chose to be a part of our Boarding family. We enjoy being among young people and being able to influence their lives – be a part of their lives. We are passionate in making the Boarding House a safe, respectful and homely environment, ensuring that boarders in every age group feel a sense of belonging and are able to be an individual whether full, weekly or flexi-boarding.

Your experience in boarding will offer inspiring and full of new opportunities to you. You will quickly become a part of our family, making new friends, spend time together as a family, with older students offering help and support to those new and younger boarders.

We are committed to making sure that you embrace fully the joy and wonder of school life at St. John’s. We will support you with your studies during Formal Study time. Once the studies are finished, we will be able to cater various interests of all boarders, be it arts or crafts, watching movies in the TV room, playing pool, or simply relaxing in the common areas or in the garden.

We foster a sense of independence and expect our boarders to carry out duties and tasks that will equip them for later life.

Being a houseparent is a very rewarding and fascinating experience for us. You will find us willing to help and support you in the best way we could. We are there for you at all the times you need us.

We look forward to warmly welcoming you to our boarding family and we are sure you will love your time with us.

Fernan and Annafe Malinab, Boarding House parents

where everything goes. Remember to bring some

things you want to have with you. We want you to
create your own space and make it feel homely.
You will have a tour of the house so that you know
where everything is and a boarding induction to get
to know the area, the school grounds, fire assembly
points and all the ins and outs of the boarding
community. You might be feeling worried about
getting lost or forgetting something.

Please don't worry - you will have a buddy in the house and
school and they can help with anything you need.
You will also meet your housemates; some could
be new too, so you'll have lots in common already.
There will also be time for a snack and a chat
before you get ready for bed. It might feel strange to
be in a new place on the first night, but after such a
busy day, you'll soon be fast asleep!

On Sundays, you can spend some time relaxing
