Our students are precious and so we go the extra mile to provide a warm, congenial environment where each of them can thrive, happy and secure, amid the nurturing support provided by a caring dedicated team led by the vice principal pastoral. The students enjoy the comfort and security of our welcoming buildings with modern conveniences that give the school that pleasant feel of home. Five students stay in each of the cozy, fully furnished rooms in the hostels, where a constant supply of power ensures an atmosphere conducive to study, play or a refreshing rest. Importantly, there is a common room for the students to interact and relax.
Boarders, who form a greater percentage of our student population, are housed in three buildings where they live and develop sound social skills we strive to foster. The Boys’ Hostel is a beautiful three-storey building with four hundred comfortable rooms for Year 8 to Year 12 boys. The boys in Year 7 stay in the one-storey Nguru Hostel with its excellent facilities, superb furnishing and crucial pastoral care that all ensure they enjoy the unique experience of home away from home. There is a separate wing for Girls’ Hostel, a new and beautiful building for the girls to thrive as they discover and exploit their abilities in a peaceful, secure atmosphere. The rooms in all the hostels come with study areas and there are recreational facilities that offer healthy and exhilarating activities when the students are not at study. The boarders are aware of the big roles they play in creating and sustaining an agreeable environment for every one of them to grow and feel they are part of a happy family of scholars, living out the ethos of tolerance, responsibility, hygiene and etiquette and volunteerism.
A rich mix of after-school activities means that our students are positively engaged. The school-wide writing contest Chrome, spelling bee contest Spellbound and the public-speaking competition Resonance are some of the exciting activities here which the students find exceptionally interesting and motivating. However, we recognize that holistic education goes beyond academic exercise and that belief informs for the business fares, career day, vocational day and the Corona Ultimate Man competition we organize.
