Definitions and explanations
Pupils’ boarding homes are institutions that provide food and lodging for pupils during their study and organise educational work, cultural and other pupils’ activities.
As a rule, only regular pupils are entitled to food and lodging and they can get it based on their previous education achievements and economic situation of pupils and their parents, guardians etc.
Vacancies in boarding homes may also be filled with students from institutions of higher education and pupils from other schools, seminars and courses, as long as this does not interfere with regular education work and life in a boarding home.
Students’ boarding homes are institutions that provide food and lodging for students during their study. Besides accommodation, meals can be provided.
