Sint-Joseph’s Boarding School is the one boarding school in Waterfall Creek since 1783. Sint-Joseph was the grandfather of the first principal, so that’s why the school is named Sint-Joseph’s. At first it was a boys only school, but when the mayor of Waterfall Creek got a daughter and he decided he wanted his girl to go to Sint-Joseph’s Boarding School, they decided to change it to a school for both boys and girls. Now, Sint-Joseph’s Boarding School is one of the biggest schools in the area of Waterfall Creek. Lots of students from different city’s go to SJBS, which is the short name a lot of students use for the boarding school.
As every boarding school SJBS is located in a big complex, where students follow courses, but where they also have their own rooms where they can study and hang out with friends. Students can share a room, but not with someone of the opposite sex.SJBS has a no tolerance policy as it comes to boys in the girls rooms and the other way around. Therefor there are teachers walking rounds on every floor checking if no one is disobeying the rules.
