At TVIS Hostel we provide a home away from home where we maintain traditional values in a family atmosphere. We develop a desire for truth, decorum, courtesy and high-achievement in every child. These values are the cornerstones of success.
We provide an environment whereby students can develop their intellectual talents in an atmosphere of positive encouragement and in conditions that are conducive to work. Daily preparation is well-structured, supervised in a orderly manner.
We encourage students to participate in activities in an atmosphere which values effort.
We provide a wide range of activities, hobbies and pastimes related to age and maturity that will assist in the personal, social and cultural development of each student. These may include inter-house competitions, instrumental and vocal music, drama, speech and debate, visits to the theatre, festivals, talent nights, family fun days, formal dinners with VIP guest speakers, overnight cultural trips, camping and outward-bound experiences, cricket, basketball, soccer, tennis, swimming, snooker, billiards, TT, badminton, weight-training and athletics to mention but a few activities on offer.
We help students to develop qualities of leadership and teamwork and we encourage students to become fully involved in the corporate life of their house and to recognize and support the needs of others through service to their peers.Boarding builds self-confidence, independence, the capacity to interact with adults and fellow-students, self-discipline and a sense of direction. Through the experience of boarding, friendships are made which last a lifetime and a sense of identity with the school is forged strongly.
