The personal and organisational skills of boarders develop quickly due to the close interaction between pupils from many different backgrounds living together and managing their daily lives. Living on the School site means there is also time to build relationships formally and informally within the Houses and the School. Pupils eat breakfast, lunch and supper with their House groups in the Dining Hall, where emphasis is placed on manners and the art of proper conversation.
The opportunities for enrichment in Sports, Music, Art, Drama, other cultural and academic extension activities in enrichment time before and after the formal School day are extensive – and the time usually spent on travel time to and from school, especially in Hong Kong, can be utilised more fruitfully.
Boarders do their prep (homework) in their study bedrooms in the evenings in their Houses, but benefit from the supervision of the House staff and interaction with other pupils.
