area of concern for in-schools youths. Jhe large number of students in schools, limited number of

much more than these four major areas. They require direction, understanding, appreciation and

modeling for them to get focused in their work.

bring out challenges, experience and benefits that have been realized over time. It will fi,rther examine !he need for atijus/ment; lessons lean,/ and differences in mixed, single sex boarding and day schools.
