No teacher can substitute the “parents”. No school can be an alternative for the “Home”. Parents play a vital role in the education of a child. The school and the teachers are only an extension of the educational process which the parents have already begun at home. Hence we look forward to maximum co-operation and understanding between parents and the school authorities which will enable us to bring out the best in every student entrusted to us.
Parents are specifically requested to go through all the rules and guidelines carefully and co-operate with the school in maintaining regularity, discipline and courteous behavior.
It is vital that young persons are encouraged to participate directly in their own formation program as there can be no lasting character formation without active participation of young people themselves, whose future we are helping to shape. Young persons are quite capable of accepting responsibility if they are sufficiently prepared.
Montfort Boys’ Town does not centralize its focus solely on skill development but on equilibrium of skill and character building. In order to instill the aspects of these nature, Montfort Boys’ Town has systematically devised programs on the home side to cater for an all round development of the person.

Success depends on knowing the technical elements of the skills and combining with effective social skills to enhance business relationship and bonding. Soft skills are an embodiment of the personal characteristics to enhance and blend the technical skills to be successful and sociable.
Soft skills are inculcated into the trainees through various programs that are organized regularly after school hours. There is a healthy and monitored inter house competitions are organized. To achieve these above mentioned soft skills, the students are grouped into four houses: Anand, Louis, Gabriel and Joseph. This builds up the trainee’s competitive skills, allegiance to the group, and camaraderies among the peer group. Each weekend, house inspections are organized and marks are allotted to each houses based on their ability to keep the premises neat and tidy. The house leaders along with the Brothers inspect the toilets, dormitories, class rooms and allotted duty areas for their weekly maintenances. It is to bring about a sense of hygiene and cleanliness among the students. Stage programs such as elocution, quiz on general knowledge, current affairs- local and international and on life history of St. Montfort, entertainment, individual talent show and singing competition are conducted and evaluated. The inspection and stage program marks are added up to determine the overall House winner. Successful house shall receive the best house trophy during the graduation day.
Boys’ Town is run exactly like a town. Boys’ Town has its own Mayor, deputy mayor, and house leaders act as the Mayor’s councillors. Boys’ Home program is organized, managed and controlled by the Student Mayor and his deputies & councillors.
