Modern-Day Boarding for Today’s Parents

Published by SchoolAdvisor on Nov 15, 2019, 11:33 AM

If you are a successful, busy parent, juggling your career and home life or if you appreciate extra opportunities for your child to be independent in a learning focussed environment, boarding could be a good option for you.

Nexus International School Malaysia is home to boarders from ages 10 to 18 from different states in Malaysia (including the Klang Valley) and all over the world, providing learners with a supportive community, and a balanced programme that aims to nurture boarders to be independent and respectful of others in a multicultural environment.

Learners work towards their IGCSE qualifications in Year 11 and go on to take the IB Diploma programme for their pre-university course. This enables them to enter top universities around the world.

The school offers flexible stay options to suit the needs of modern-day living.

Flexible Boarding Options

Whether you are looking for a full boarding experience, a place for your child to be during your office hours or simply a boarding experience from Monday to Friday, Nexus boarding offers alternatives tailored for your needs. We will look after all your child’s needs including meals, supervision, tutoring, activities, companionship and more!

Full boarding

Learners board for the term and leave during the school holidays

Weekday boarding

Learners stay from Monday to Friday and return home during the weekend.

Day boarding - ideal option for working parents

Learners remain at school from 7.30 am to 8 pm, Monday to Friday. Parents pick their children up after activities and prep (homework) each day, making it a great option for those who would prefer to have their children sleep at home.

Nexus Boarding Lifestyle

Nexus Boarding offers a fulfilling, enriching and learning focussed experience that includes the following:

  • After school coaching and personal tutoring
  • Sports activities such as swimming, netball, basketball, football and others
  • Weekly community service
  • Weekend activities such as cycling, trekking, baking, rock climbing, trips and festive parties
  • Wellbeing activities such as yoga, meditation, crafting and talks

Nexus boarders embrace sustainable development and environmental initiatives. They have links with the Tzu Chi Recycling Centre. In addition, humility and empathy are ingrained in every student’s lifestyle through community-based activities. One such activity is “Love in a Box” where children in a home or orphanage are asked to write a wish and two or three boarders then help them fulfil these wishes.

Besides activities that promote healthy living, close attention is placed on wellbeing and the promotion of mental health amongst the boarders.

“These days, a lot of children are dealing with stress, depression and anxiety. We have a weekly wellbeing programme that includes activities such as early morning fitness, yoga, hama beads crafting, playing board games and nutritional talks. All boarders participate in this programme,” explains Nexus Director of Boarding, Troy Looms.

Nexus recognises the importance of communicating with parents. They are kept in the know about everything that happens in the boarding house through the use of an app that connects parents, teachers and students.
