Under the care and guidance of our professional staff our students are encouraged to develop independence and personal responsibility. In the academic area we encourage students to become active learners who are involved in their learning journey. In the boarding area students take responsibility for managing their everyday lives and become involved in kitchen duties. They learn to make their beds and tidy their bedrooms each day and to look after their clothes and belongings. Importantly, our students also learn how to live harmoniously with others. We develop these skills by talking and counselling them on issues such as dealing with conflict and sharing.
