Tihu House

House Report

Tihu House was founded in the April of 2004 as the Headmaster wanted the youngest children of the school to have their own space, allowing them an opportunity to grow into self-reliant and happy individuals. He also wanted them to follow a daily schedule that would not be too taxing on them but one that would be filled with fun.

Tihu now houses children from the Junior School ie., from class five to class eight girls. Girls of class 8 live on the first floor and girls of class 5, 6 and 7 live on the ground floor. At present we have a strength of 127, of which 117 are boarders and 10 are the children of the staff members.

The house upholds enabling an atmosphere where each child recognises and expresses their best potential;  elocution, singing, quizzes, spelling bee, art, football, basketball, swimming and other competitions are the various activities that they are exposed to. Games play an important part in the curriculum and children are encouraged to try out various games like football, cricket, basketball, tennis, table – tennis and swimming.

The subjects they learn are English, Mathematics, Second Language (Hindi, Assamese and Bengali), Third Language, History, Geography, Science, Environmental Education, Art, Music and Dance.

On the pastoral side, two housemistress are overall in charge for their well being. They are assisted by a team of tutors who dine with and mentor them on a daily basis. The Dame and other support staff take care of their laundry, medicare and hygiene.

The children  are allowed to visit the cafeteria once a week and they get one hundred and fifty rupees worth of coupons to spend on chocolates, chips, ice cream, juice and other cooked items. A Variety Store has been opened so that students can visit once a week to buy things like toiletries, stationery and food stuff like cheese and pickles.

Their mobile telephones are held by their tutors and they get to call home for one hour on the weekend. They are also given laptops on Saturdays and Sundays during their leisure time.

Children get to watch an English movie every Saturday, which is followed by group discussion in their English class.

Food is both vegetarian and non-vegetarian and they can choose what they want. However, wasting of food is not allowed! They are allowed to bring pickles, beverages, spreads, jams and sauces from home. Tuck is not allowed and children cannot keep any food items or medicines with them.

Jewellery is a strict ‘no, no’ except for simple ear studs or ear rings for girls.

The lingua franca at all times is English. We have a very strict ‘no bullying’ and ‘no corporal punishment’ policy at the school. Leave during semester is generally not granted except in very special circumstances such as the death of an immediate member of the family, the marriage of a brother or sister (not cousins, uncles or aunts) or emergency medical treatment.

The Tihu House echoes with laughter and the energies 117 boarders for whom Tihu is home away from home.
