Welcome to our ‘home away from home’ where unity and cultural diversity are celebrated in equal measure.
The TIPS residences are an integral part of the school community, offering separate-wing accommodation for boys and girls.
In our diverse but shrinking world society, the Residence provides a relaxed, friendly home for students from a wealth of cultures. We actively celebrate the cultural diversity of our student body, and promote internationalism as an intrinsic part of boarding life.
We aim to make every student aware that they are important individuals, and encourage them to develop into mature and responsible global citizens. We also believe that the boarding experience should encourage positive involvement, with students engaged in a wide variety of extracurricular activities.
The Residences have live-in teacher supervisors who are each assigned a group of students to support, plus school counsellors, and a campus nurse. It is vital to recognise that, in conjunction with parents, the Residence, and its highly trained staff serve the needs of the whole student – academic, physical, personal, and emotional.
Many friendships made here will endure a lifetime, and all will widen a student’s understanding and appreciation of world cultures and customs. This is a special experience, and the more a student puts into the programme, the more he or she will gain from it.
Students have use of the Internet, Library, games rooms, and a boarders-only dining hall for breakfast and dinner. At lunch students use the purpose-built dining complex which serves up a healthy and nutritionally-balanced diet that fully embraces the multicultural diversity of our student body.
