- For long term Boarders

  1. How are rooms allocated?

    Room allocation is based on the Boarding School's discretion. Graduating boarders will be allocated 2-bedded units, where available. Air-conditioned rooms are available with additional charge and subject to availability.

  2. How frequent is the laundry service?

    Laundry collection and return is done 3 times a week. Boarders can send 10 pieces of clothing each time. There are coin-operated washing machines and dryers available for those preferring to do their own washing.

  3. Do boarders have to be in the Boarding School by a certain time?

    The following are the respective curfew times for our boarders:

    • Secondary 1 to 4: 7pm (daily)
    • Junior College and above: 8pm (Mon to Fri) & 10.30pm (Sat, Sun, PH, MOE-Calendar School Holidays)

  4. Can boarders stay out overnight or return after curfew time?

    Staying out overnight or return after curfew is granted with the submission of a Leave Form or Permission for Late Curfew Form and request from their parents/official guardian/school to the Tutor-in-charge

  5. Can parents visit boarders?

    Parents should call boarders directly and ahead of time to notify them of their visits. Parents will need to exchange for a visitor pass at the security post. They can only meet boarders in the Function Room. Visitors are not allowed to enter boarders' rooms.

    Visitor hours:
    Weekdays (Monday - Friday): 3pm - 7pm only
    Weekends (Sat / Sun / Public Holiday): 10am - 10pm

  6. What kind of meals are provided?

    A range of meals are provided over the week comprising Western, Chinese and other local & Asian-themed food. Meals come with a main course, side dish, fruit and soup.

    Our kitchen is non-Halal, hence meals for our Muslim residents will be catered from an external kitchen.

    Applicants should inform the Boarding School of any special dietary requirements during application to enquire if these requirements can be met before confirmation of stay.

  7. How do I apply to stay?

    We accept applications on a case-by-case basis. Please contact us with your enquiry.
