LIFE AT MATRIX BOARDING HOUSE
Situated in the beautiful campus that is MGS, the House offers a unique experience for all students whether local or international. The House provides a comfortable, modern and bright environment with separate accommodation for male and female students, our rooms range in size from single occupancy for our Sixth Form, to four and six beds type of rooms for the junior years, all of which are furnished to the highest modern international standard, with independent air conditioning.
The Boarding House includes state of the art facilities including 'wifi' access to all areas, study rooms, games rooms, a theatre, library, dining area, and resident nurse which together provides a constant, safe environment in which to learn and socialise. Our boarders are guided and nurtured by a dedicated team of international Boarding staff, who are both experienced and committed to the wellbeing of our boarders, these staff come from all parts of the world, UK, South Africa, India, China, to name just a few and really make us a truly international community.
The House, which mirrors a British residential house system, operates a rewards and sanctions system where-by students apply to be rewarded with small privileges, i.e. bed time extension or extension of electronic device usage times. We believe this encourages responsibility and maturity with regards to their own actions. In the unlikely event of an individual's drop in personal standards, these privileges can be withdrawn. In this way, Boarding helps to improve a young person’s self-confidence and independence, in line with our school's experiential learning approach.
Boarders are encouraged to participate as much as possible in House life and are provided with a wide range of activities, some forming part of the curriculum (especially in the Sixth Form) and some purely social. They have access to an Olympic size swimming pool, squash, tennis, and badminton courts, a 10 pin bowling complex, and a golf driving range, paint-ball park and even an extreme park, all adjacent to the campus as well as of course school facilities such as music rooms, art rooms and our own extensive sports complex. Weekend trips are organised on a regular basis, favourite destinations include Kuala Lumpur, Port Dickson for Assault Courses, Sunway Pyramid Ice Rink, Malacca, as well as many other local destinations.
It is through this combination that Matrix Global Schools is able to offer a Boarding experience that we believe is unique in Malaysia, if not in Asia.
