UNICA School owns and operates a hostel a short distance from the school, at 708 Bodel Street, Rietondale where approximately 40 learners live with a resident nurse and house staff. |
The students share rooms and bathrooms, with younger and older children lodging with learners of their own approximate age. The hostel has lovely grounds that include play equipment.
Hostel residents have a structured routine, but they also have VCR and DVD videos available for leisure time. Donations of favorite DVDs are very welcome by the hostel staff and thoroughly enjoyed by the children!
Food and safe shelter is provided for the school year, with the exception of identified school breaks when the hostel is closed.
The hostel may also be used to provide respite care, and parents may arrange with school officials to board their child at the hostel on a temporary basis.
