Boarding Assembly. Pillar 3 Building Positive Friendships

Our first Boarding Assembly in 2022 has seen the launch of The Third Pillar of our Well-being Program, Building Positive Friendships.

Friendships are one of the most important elements of our lives. We are social beings and despite differences between us we can all agree that we need people around us to be fulfilled in our nature.

In Boarding this is even more emphasized. By being away from the family, the students are led to create strong bonds to lay the foundations of their “Boarding Family”. Peers, roommates, colleagues become like brothers, confidents, close friends… in some cases, inseparable for life. The nature of this connection is then authentic, genuine and forged by the circumstances and the kinship that the setting enhances.


This third Pillar will accompany our students, and it will offer them the opportunity to work on a range of many different projects and activities until February Break. The two takeaway points for this pillar are: What is a Toxic Friendship and, Boundaries, Why is this so important.
