Antsa Rinaldi Rafaliarisoa, Cepi Safrudin Abdul Jabar


This study aims to obtain deep knowledge of the condition of the management of the boarders at the Saint Aloysius Turi Middle School dormitory in the Special Region of Yogyakarta. The research involves a case study research method. It mainly involves the participation of four caretaker team members and ten boarders. The obtained data were collected through techniques, such as interviews, observations and document analysis. The research study involves the application of three concurrent data analysis techniques.  The research led to the knowledge and the understanding that despite the dormitory’s geographical location and its small size, the caretakers at the involved school dormitory make the effort to provide most of the services and tasks required for an effective pupil personnel management as well as they can. Generally, the boarder management implemented at this specific school dormitory involves the establishment of different tasks and services. Through the discussing of important factors, including the supervision of the staff and training, the establishing of formal program, also need to be considered by the care takers. Care takers still need to make some effort to improve the management services.
