Ward It is a notion with several uses. From pupillus, a Latin word, it is usual to be used to name a child or youth regarding their teacher, teacher or tutor . For example: “The new regional athletic champion is the pupil of Professor Franco”, “I was a pupil of this school for five years”, “I want my son to be a pupil of the San Marcos School”.
Occasionally, the term ward is used as the equivalent of student , student , apprentice or other similar terms. However, it is often used specifically to name the student who live in the school (spending your nights there) or that lunch at the institution .
These particularities, therefore, raise certain differences in the proper use of the concepts. The child entering the school at 8 in the morning and retires at 13 , without receiving any food at the entity, can be named as a student or student. On the other hand, to that child who remains in school until 17 hours , having lunch in the school canteen, you can qualify as a ward.
Similarly, a child who spends eight months a year in school, living inside the institution , may be defined as a ward or internal student. Different is the situation of the one who returns home every day and only the next day returns to school, only to attend the corresponding classes.
