OUR SCHOOL
The school Head Master’s office is next to the laboratory which students use to conduct different experiments in biology, chemistry and physics. At 2 pm, students go to the assembly hall for daily announcements on routines and activities. The dining hall is between the school lab and the dormitory; students eat their meals in the dinning hall. There are many fruit vendors near the dining hall selling apples, pineapples, oranges, and bananas. After their meal at 5 pm, students go to their dormitories to shower and clean up. There are several bathrooms and laundry rooms where the students take baths and wash their clothes. After their evening meals, students normally go to the classrooms for personal study.
