Why Boarding

Why Choose Boarding?

Being a classic public school, Burn Hall continues its legacy of providing excellent boarding facilities to the students (boys) from Prep to VI grade. Education being our topmost priority, our focus is on discipline, inculcating sportsman spirit and nurturing high moral values in the young scholars. They are equipped with all the necessary qualities to face the challenges of the practical world.

The boarding provides an environment of academic excellence, character building, and social grooming with a view to producing creative, dynamic and well groomed students, who are self-aware individuals, motivated Muslims and dedicated Pakistanis.

Studies

The Institution is highly cognizant of the academic excellence of the boarders and for this purpose there are regular two hours classes after school time in afternoon under the supervision of Headmistress. The lessons are learned and revised during this time. Each housemistress conducts a Night Study after dinner in which homework and test preparation is done.

Sports

The boarders are encouraged to take maximum part in sports. Physical training instructors are present on campus all day to help, assist and supervise them in various games such as cricket, football, basketball, badminton etc. Wide playgrounds are open to them to exercise their favorite physical activities.
