Cleaning and Laundry
All boarding rooms receive a basic cleaning every other day, and a thorough cleaning during all holidays. Towels and bed linens are provided and washed by the housekeeping team. School uniforms are also collected weekly and washed by housekeeping.
All responsibilities and duties are designed to help students develop confidence and independence. Boarding staff assist students with any tasks whenever necessary.
Student responsibilities and duties
- Kitchen Duty: Every student is assigned one kitchen duty per week. On this day they are responsible for assisting in preparing and cleaning the boarding kitchen for meals.
- Personal laundry: Students take care of washing, drying and ironing their personal laundry (all non-uniform items).
- House Representatives: Students elect a House Representative (HR) and a Deputy House Representative. The HR is a member of the Secondary Student Council.
- Feedback committees: These groups are formed on an ad hoc basis to allow for student involvement in different areas such as food, activities, new student orientation etc.
- Student Mentoring: Older students mentor younger students within the boarding houses in formal and informal settings. Mentoring is conducted in academics, extra-curricular activities, house or school projects and behaviour.
