UWC Dilijan takes the well-being of its staff and students seriously. The dining hall serves excellent, nutritionally-balanced meals freshly prepared in our own kitchens, using predominantly locally-sourced, organic foods.
As well as caring for the students' physical well-being, the school provides a multi-tiered pastoral system to ensure that students are supported emotionally. Students have both "Toon parents" (House parents) and pastoral tutors who provide "listening ears" as well as helping students manage their time effectively to achieve a healthy balance between the numerous demands of their curricular, co-curricular and social programmes.
Peer listeners - Peer listeners are a group of twelve students, two from each Toon, who are selected and then receive some basic training from a psychologist to provide a listening ear and support for their peers, themselves supported by their Toon Parent.
