The morning hours are spent
in the dormitories studying. The dorm master and
dorm mistresses help in supervision and assist the

progress of the children. Studies aside, the
children also contribute to the work in the
dormitories lending a helping hand inside and

laundry work. Outstanding students are rewarded
for their contribution. They are well trained in
their roles that even without the matron, they can
manage the whole show on their own.
