The Hostel is situated within the school campus. It presently accommodates 260 boys. We have students from Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and different states of India. The hostel has three sections which are as follows:
Junior (class UKG to 5), Middle (class 6 to 8) and Seniors(class 8 and above)
Health : A family doctor visits the hostel every Monday and Thursday. A nurse is kept aside to take care of the sick in the infirmary.
Catering : Apart from the regular healthy catering, the ill boys and all junior boys are given a supplementary diet.
Entertainment : Every Friday, latest blockbusters are screened (occasionally on the LCD). Every Saturday and Sundays TV serials are also shown.
Music Classes : A music teacher is provided to the hostellers who wish to learn the violin.
Tuition : Mathematics and Science tuition is arranged as per requirements.
Extracurricular activities : Ample opportunities are given to the borders to participate in various co-curricular activities like basketball, volleyball, football, table tennis, badminton, lawn tennis and swimming. Special opportunities are provided for singing and dancing during hostel functions.
Internet : Broadband internet facilities are provided during weekends for class 7 and above onwards on a rotation basis.
The opening of the Hostel Department to cater to the needs of the students hailing from far flung regions was a felt necessity. In the course of time it had to be revamped with an independent charge by creating the post of the Bursar and Minister to handle it. Earlier however the Swiss Fathers had felt that the principal alone could take care of the financial management along with his normal task as the principal.
The new arrangement was not only in keeping with the stated policy of the church to keep wide open the portals of her educational institutions to welcome everyone irrespective of their cast, creed and nationality as a part of an apostolate, but also a sound managerial practice. To this task Fr. Martin Ray, Fr. Hubert Rucksthul, Fr. Joseph Hofstetter, Fr. William Miranda (1976–82) Fr. Noel Pereira (1982–84) Fr. Edward Sangness (1984–1987)Fr. Paul D’Souza(1987–89), Fr. Lawrence Monteiro(1989–93), Fr Abraham K.& Fr. Frederick Lepcha (1993–94)Fr. George D’Souza (1994 – 2000) Fr. Swid Singh (2000–04) Fr. Derek D”Souza (2004– )have greatly enhanced the tone and texture of this institution. Whoever said that, “behind every successful man there is a woman” was a mighty wise guy. Down the years, the Cluny Sisters have provided unflinching support to the School by taking care of the Junior Section and the Infirmary.
