I've been thinking about independent schools can use the power of Internet tools -- such as flickr, Blogger, and MySpace -- in terms of communicating with students, parents, alumni, and prospective students & parents.

Robert Kennedy over at about.com has a recent blog post about ways to promote schools. He concludes his post by suggesting,
Marketing your school successfully in today's highly competitive environment requires presenting your message in many different ways.
Sometimes the obvious isn't so obvious, I guess.

One thought I had was creating a blog & a linked flickr site to make daily posts about life at school. Posts could be brief (perhaps as brief as my Notes, but likely a bit longer) with a picture. A quick post about an athletic event or a play or even what was served for lunch. Upload digital pics and blog briefly: maybe 15 to 30 minutes of work daily to provide an ongoing live advertisement about the school and the life of the school.

A boarding school is an educational institution where some or all pupils not only study, but also live, amongst their peers.

The word 'boarding' in this sense means to provide food and lodging.

Boarding schools are sometimes referred to as public schools in the UK and as "private school" in American English. The amount of time one spends in boarding school varies considerably from one year to twelve or more, but five to nine years is

most usual. Boarding school pupils may spend the majority of their adolescent life away from their parents, although pupils return home during the holidays and are able to do so at certain other times.

Finding a boarding school can be difficult sometimes, not only if you are looking for a normal private boarding school, but especially when you are looking for a special type of boarding school. There are so many factors which you have to consider.

The most important fact is that you will have to find a boarding school which will suit best to your child whether it’s a religious boarding school, a boarding school for troubled teen, or any other type of boarding school.

Boarding school Directory will help you how to make your decision.
