The day starts early at The Hub School. The boarding masters wake the boys for morning prayers at the mosque between 5.30 and 6.30 am.
Breakfast starts in the hall at 7.00 am.
After breakfast the academic day starts. There are eight lessons of fifty minutes each.
There are three lessons before the first break. This is deliberate as it is well known that boys learn and concentrate best in the morning. Typically, these lessons consist of Urdu, English and Mathematics although this is not possible for every class every day.
Following break, there are two further lessons before lunch and midday prayers.
At lunch the boys are seated in houses with a teacher. This creates an opportunity for the older boys to mix with younger boys and for family groups to be together.
The head of table serves the food to the teachers and boys. There is a different head of table each day. three further lessons. Then the day staff hands over to the boarding staff. However, as most staff at Hub school live on site, the teachers are expected to play a full role in the life of the school after formal lessons.
Between the end of lessons and lights out, the time is divided into four parts.
One of the most enjoyable parts of the day is when all boys take part in a sporting activity.
This is followed by dinner and prayers.
At prep time, the boys must complete their homework, revision or reading. Computers for research are available.
Finally the boys relax in their common rooms or sleep before lights out at 9.00 pm.
Formal school finishes at midday on Saturday. Saturday afternoon starts with house time when teams and activities are organised. There then follows a full programme of sporting and recreational activities.
Sunday is more relaxed. After prayers the boys are free until l0 am.
At l0 am there are inter-house activities such as chess, debate, plays and drama In the afternoon there are more sporting activities.
The day ends with a barbeque and songs around the camp fire and relaxing in the common rooms.
