5 Steps to Get the Most out of Boarding!

While every boarding student that arrives at SMUS has their own unique identity and culture, there are some general steps to follow if you want to get the most out of your boarding experience!

Step #1: Study Hard!

Okay…maybe not too hard – the pictures below don’t necessarily look like the traditional classroom, though they were still getting the work done. Teigan catching some sun while studying and Josh and Harun were assigned homework that consisted of cooking a Chinese meal for Ms. Mao! Delicious!

Step #2: Get Off Campus on the Weekend

Some awesome shots below of the Bolton students at the Mini Golf Course. Mr. Donatelli said that he would buy ice cream to any student that got a lower score than him…in the end, the only ice cream Mr. Donatelli bought was his own!

A few other Bolton students decided to check out one of Canada’s National Historic Sites closeby!

Colwood is home to historic Fort Rodd Hill, a Canadian National Historic Site. Built by the British in the 1890’s, this coast artillery fort was designed to defend Victoria and the Esquimalt Naval Base. Visitors come to explore the three gun batteries, underground magazines, command posts, guardhouses, barracks and searchlight emplacements that are the vestiges of a bygone era.

Set on a beautiful wide open waterfront park, our students enjoyed the spectacular sea and mountain views as they bird watch and investigated the tide pools along the shoreline. The iconic Fisgard Lighthouse was their reward after a short walk.

Step #3: Take On Some Leadership Roles

Malik and Subaig make regular appearances at whole-school assemblies on Monday. This last week was tons of fun and featured a competition between siblings. Make sure you check out Leupold and LeRoy’s win in the video below! Way to represent Bolton House!

Step #4: Stay Fit

There is no short of activities and sports to sign-up for at SMUS. We are deep into the rugby season currently and it is awesome watching the growth of the Bolton students on the field. Check out more of the action below!

and Step #5: Leave room in your schedule for spontaneous hangouts with your friends

Quiet hour in Bolton last week turned into a spontaneous game of baseball on the field which lasted until the sun set. What a great way to spend some time in the evening, now that the days have daylight for longer!
