There are lots of things to do at the weekends and after school. Javea is a lovely place where there are lots of beaches, shops and restaurants. We are able to choose what we want to do and we have a really good time’.
I am in year 12, and this is my first year in Laude Lady Elizabeth in boarding house.
I think the boarding house is a very nice place to live, because there are a lot of different people with individual personalities. I found a lot of friends in boarding, which made my life in boarding much happier, and more cheerful. House parents are very loving, supportive, and caring about every single child in boarding. If anything happens, they are always there to help us. The food is very tasty and balanced. Every day we are having different dishes and amazing desserts. The place where is our boarding located is quiet and peaceful. So when you wake up in the morning you can hear the wind blowing behind the window. Boarding provides for us a lot of options in which trips we can go on. Every weekend and Friday we allowed to go out to spend our free time outside the boarding. It is nice because we can go out to the beach or sit in a cafe. Also school provides mini bus for us to the place which is called The Arenal. Twice a week people can go the gym to do sport, and once a week mini bus always taking us to the supermarket. It is useful, because we can save some money instead of paying for taxis.
I experienced a lot of positive, emotional time in boarding, and I hope my final year will be as amazing as this.
Boarding at LES has been really interesting and has helped me to learn about different cultures. I have tried other boarder’s traditional food and learnt some of their language and have taught them some of mine. We live happily together and all get on very well.
Being away from home is difficult, but boarding has made me a lot more independent. It is a new and great experience for me and a rare opportunity, one that anyone boarding should appreciate. The House Parents are really nice and they help you with any problems you may have. They encourage you to use your study time efficiently and to work hard during the school day.
The overall boarding experience has helped me to become an independent and strong person, with a more mature outlook on life and thanks to this experience I am now ready for university!
