Life in a hostel means a whole panorama of experiences that span from making ‘friends for life’, to gaining the confidence to face life independently. That is why we have laid a lot of emphasis in creating a warm, welcoming, invigorating and home-like atmosphere in our separate boys’ and girls’ hostels. At Saffron , the hostel is a home away from home, where the children develop the ‘confidence to be independent’, be it friendships, food, belongings, rooms, joys, sorrows, challenges or any of the uncountable experiences of growing-up together.
The Saffron Boarding House is a modern fully air-conditioned and refreshing building , built with the explicit purpose of offering a stimulating and enriching experience where students "learn to live life cheerfully" . The caring and understanding support staff including housekeepers, matrons, ayahs, laundry and maintenance staff, wardens and of course the principal and teachers guide and pay special attention to the hostel students.
Dining is a special time as all eat together in ‘Family Style’ in a Dining Hall. Boys and Girls have separate dining halls, which are combined at the time of celebrations and gatherings. Quality home style, hygienic, nutritious Vegetarian and Non-Vegetarian Indian, Chinese and Continental meals are served. All the children eat together under the supervision of the Hostel staff.
Children are encouraged to write letters to their parents regularly. In addition, children may receive calls from parents according to the calling schedule.
Once a month all children whose birthday falls in that month come together for a cake cutting ceremony along with a dance party and a special menu for the day.
The school has a well established support system for children which includes laundry, haircutting, tailoring, shoe mending, locksmiths, electrician and carpenters.
The School has close guarded security system manned by security experts. An ultramodern close TV surveillance system covering the whole campus assists the security personnel provide round-the-clock security for the students.
