A new academic year has begun!

Over the past two weeks we have enjoyed welcoming many new and returning students into our boarding community. It is a very special and exciting time with new adventures to be had, friendships to be made and challenges to overcome. We hope everyone settles in well and enjoys the start of what is going to be an absolutely wonderful academic year.

"Coming back to boarding is like going back to my second home: even though I'm not with my family, I still feel the warmth from my guardians, boarding mentors and especially from my friends." Susu, Grade 12.

We would like to say a special welcome to the newest members of our community. This year we have over forty new boarding students and two new boarding Learning Mentors who join us from a variety of countries.

Our new students originate from all over the world: America, Australia, Bhutan, China, England, Indonesia, Korea, Thailand and more. Collectively they speak many languages and bring uniqueness to our community. We hope they will settle in seamlessly to the diverse and stimulating environment here at Prem. We would also like to extend our welcome to our two new boarding learning mentors: Ajarn Jurme who joins us from Bhutan and Ajarn Quinn who joins us from America.

Whilst the boarding students relaxed and enjoyed the long holidays, their boarding home was rapidly transformed. All apartments were repainted and the students’ beds, bedside tables, wardrobes and study desks were given a face-lift. In addition a new WiFi system has been implemented into our boarding clusters to assist with increasing the speed of the Internet connectivity.

We wish all our boarding staff and students the best of luck and happiness in this 2015/16 academic year!
