Write a Letter to Your Mother Describing Your Hostel Life [With PDF]

A lot of students are sent to boarding school. They have a lot of stories to tell from their everyday hostel life. Through letters, they share all their exciting adventures and who is a better companion than their mother. That is why we thought of writing a few letters from students to their mother about their different experiences of hostel life.

So even if you do not have a hostel life you can totally compose these letters with these  below examples. I hope these examples will help you to write such letters whenever you are asked to. So let’s get started.

My dear Mother,

I just finished reading your letter. I would like to share my new experiences in my hostel life with you. It is different from a regular day school but slowly I am enjoying this.

 To begin with, this new hostel life has taught me a lot of things. I am glad that I am able to do so many things on my own. From making my own bed, to cleaning my clothes, organising books , I am doing everything which you would always do for me.  Our school has a daily routine which we need to abide by thoroughly.

My day begins at 6o’ clock with the loud bell. After that, we all are headed to the assembly for our daily prayer. My classes start at 8 o’clock before which I have my breakfast, take a bath and get ready for school.

Our teachers are really good as they take extra care of our studies since we live away from our parents. In the evening we have to go to the study room to finish all our studies. The food of the hostel is certainly not good as yours. But it is fun to have friends always around.

I truly miss you mom. I hope to see you soon during the break. Please take care of your health and look after dad. 

Yours affectionately,

My dearest Mother,

I am writing to you after a long time. The last two weeks all my exams kept me extremely busy. Glad to let you know that all my exams went quite well.

It was a little bit difficult to study alone without your help. But Mrs. Sharma, my English teacher, helped me a lot whenever I faced any kind of problem. Since our exam is over, our school is taking us for an excursion to the nearby museum for a day. It is going to be great after such a hectic routine in the hostel. Also, they have introduced a movie night every Friday. This week we will watch ‘The Sound of Music”. I am very excited.

I will share everything about my trip with you and also my report card. Take care of yourself.

Your loving daughter,

My dear Mother,

I hope you are fine mom. My life in the hostel has become quite interesting. Also, I loved the sweater that you sent for me. Everyone complimented me after wearing it.

This week our teacher told us that we can learn two new subjects according to our preference. I was glad to get such an opportunity and I have enrolled myself for French language class. Also, for my extracurricular activities I chose violin.

Last Sunday all my roommates arranged a picnic in our dormitory and we happily made sandwiches for ourselves. I am happy to let you know that I scored full marks in Physics. My teachers praised me a lot. I am sure you would be very content to hear this news.

Please write to me soon. Convey my love for my little sister Meera.

Yours affectionately,

My dear Mother,

I received your letter yesterday and I am glad to know that both you and dad are doing well. It has been almost a month in this hostel but I still feel a little bit homesick.

We are having classed from Monday to Friday from 9 a.m to 3 p.m. On Saturdays we have our extracurricular and game classes. The most exciting thing is that the library remains open everyday till night. So I am reading a lot of story books.

I just finished reading “The Jungle Book” which is a beautiful story. Every evening after school we are allowed to play any sports of our choice for one hour after which we head to the study room. We also have a drawing competition this week and I have enrolled my name for that. I am practising everyday. 

I will let you know the result of the competition in my next letter. Take care and convey my regards to grandma.

Yours affectionately,
