BOARDING

We believe that boarding and school life are an integrated community that enables our boarders to extend their learning outside normal school hours. Boarders are given the opportunity to take up music lessons such as violin, guitar, drums and piano; and engage in a range of sports’ activities after school.

Our boarding house parents go the extra mile in caring for the boarders by encouraging them to foster respect and concern for one another. Each set of boarding house comes with its own chill-out area where our boarding house parents created a personalised homely environment for boarders to relax and share their thoughts. Boarders get to enjoy supper prepared by their house parents, watch movies, go on trips and celebrate birthdays, all of which add spice to their boarding life, marking it a memorable and enjoyable journey.

Apart from forging life-long friendships here, boarders learn to be disciplined, responsible and independent.

Parents have a choice of either full day boarding or weekday boarding for their children.
