Uncovering the Best Room Inspection in BOSS History: A Summer School's Unique Tradition

Forget about the dreaded image of strict military inspections. At Buckswood Overseas Summer School UK (BOSS), we've turned room inspections into a rewarding and enjoyable experience. Unlike the usual chore of tidying up, our students actually look forward to keeping their rooms neat and tidy.

With six houses at BOSS, competition is fierce. Students earn valuable house points for their achievements, and room inspections offer a chance to earn even more. The best room earns five house points, while the best house overall earns a whopping ten house points. The competition runs from Friday to Friday, and the winning house gets the privilege of fresh sour dough pizza delivered to their house and the honour of eating first in the dining room for the following week.

But room inspections are about more than just points. They serve five important purposes:

1. Energise the day: We start each day with high energy and positivity, ensuring a great start for everyone.

2. Check student well-being: Room inspections provide an opportunity for our staff to ensure that all students are healthy and well. We can arrange help for any student in need.

3. Build connections: During room inspections, students and staff get to know each other better, learning names and forming relationships. This way, we can provide accurate updates to parents if needed.

4. Foster teamwork: By working together to create a welcoming and successful house, students learn the value of teamwork and take pride in their accomplishments.

5. Instil responsibility: Room inspections teach students to take pride in their personal space and belongings, as well as respect their roommates' shared space.

At BOSS, we believe in starting the day right with positive habits and routines. We want our students to succeed, appreciate the little things, and make a difference in the world. That's why our room inspections are so much more than just inspections.

And finally, this summer we may have experienced the greatest room inspection in BOSS history. Witness the flawless execution of Wells House students as they perform their morning song and dance and conduct room inspections to absolute perfection.
