The Boarding House ran a nutrition lecture on May 21st 2020, educating the students on how to develop a healthy eating habit. Through the lecture, boarders realized their own unhealthy eating habits, such as consumption of soft drinks and instant noodles. They are working hard on getting rid of the unhealthy diet.
All boarders are encouraged to take part in all Boarding House activities. All activities are designed to be interesting and fun learning experiences. Each term a calendar of activities is drawn up, which may include such things as movies, sports games and Festival parties.
