dc.description.abstract The Act on National Education (1971) of the Republic of South Africa specifies that standards five, six and seven form the Junior Secondary School phase. The executive Committee of the previous Administration for Whites of South-West Africa (here after refered to as Namibia) decided in agreement with above-mentioned act, that standard five pupils would be accommodated at the secondary schools in Namibia as from 1974, and since 1983 all Standard five pupils have been admitted to secondary schools and hostels. It has been a controversial issue ever since. Various requests were subsequently made that standard five pupils should be admitted to primary schools and hostels once again as a result of so-called adjustment problems. This investigation focuses on the general adjustability of the day scholar in comparison to the general adjustability of the boarder. The conclusions of this research are summarised as follows: There is no significant difference in the adjustment of day scholars in comparison to that of boarders. Statistically boarder boys and girls have lower intelligence than the day scholars. Day scholar boys possess strongers general social skills. Boarder boys are significantly older than day scholar boys of the same standard group. Day scholar girls seem to have more confidence and they also seem to reveal better general social skills regarding the opposite sex. Boarder girls have a tendency towards more health related problems and a poorer body perception than day scholar girls. As far as maladjusted pupils in the hostel as well as day scholars are concerned, family influences with girls of both groups seem to have a significant influence on their general adjustment. A statistically significant positive correlation exists between age and maladjustment as well as between intelligence and maladjustment. The main conclusion of this investigation is that the placing of pupils in hostels do not cause maladjustment. As far as general psychological adjustment is concerned, there is no significant difference between day scholars and boarders in standard five. en
