Mentoring Programme
The Foothills mentorship programme is an integral part of the leadership programmme, and is designed to provide the students with a direct linkage between them and role models in Industry, professional practices, the arts, sports world, and other leadership roles.
As they meet and discuss on various issues, they will get to appreciate the real life situations to blend with their theory. Invariably some of the mentors will also be parents in the school, sharing with others beyond their household.

Foothill School Mentors
Mentors on our mentorship programme are drawn from a broad network of both ladies and gentlemen volunteers who see value in building our future leaders and are prepared to spend some of their time and effort, sharing their experiences, and providing the requisite emotional and intellectual support to the boys.
This will include live meetings especially on weekends, online interaction and other communication as will be agreed upon between the two.
