Homesickness is quite common among boarding students. Homesickness usually occurs during the first couple of weeks at the start of the term and then returns during the last couple of weeks of the term, as students start anticipating their travel back home.
When homesickness occurs it is not necessary to send the student back home to their community. Doing this is avoiding the issue at hand.
All questions or concerns regarding homesickness may be directed to the Boarding Coordinator or the Health and Well Being Centre.
