Is there lots of homework?
There is no more or less than in a public high school. That is why the supervised homework sessions are important for learners to complete homework activities before they actually go home.
Why does my child need to sign a code of conduct?
It is important that we provide a safe environment for all our learners that is conducive for learning. We need to ensure that there are measures of discipline in place, as learners need boundaries.

What facilities do you offer the high school learners?
There is a knowledge/research centre/hub on campus with computer, printing and Internet facilities. Wi-Fi is also available on campus free for all learners.
What about the college/tertiary learners? Will they be kept separate?
The college learners follow different timetables to the high school learners. Therefore they will usually take breaks and holidays at different times to the high school learners.
