S-TEE Boarding House
The S-TEE Boarding Facility is committed to the total development of independent and responsible youths in a safe, secure and comfortable environment, suitable for learning and living. Our conducive boarding houses enable us to run a close knit community where students experience home away from home. The House Parents cater to the needs of the students and contact parents in the case of any challenge. The House Parents can also be contacted by parents via telephone.

SANCTIONS AND BONUSES:
Various sanctions are meted out to children who break the school rules. The most common punishments are as follows:
DETENTION: the child is required to do supervised academic work or community service for 30 minutes or more during the time when they would otherwise be free e.g. after school. This is normally used for infringements such as minor misbehaviour.
SUSPENSION: The child may be asked to leave the school for a short period. This is not a holiday, and may disrupt the child’s academic work and is used for a very serious breach of school rules such as consistent bullying, fighting, insulting, stealing or unauthorised exeats.
EXPULSION: In extreme cases such as the possession of illegal drugs or sexual relationships, a child may be asked to leave the school altogether. There is no refund of school fees.
Bonuses can be in form of extra treats, trip to nearby malls, free tickets to the cinemas.
Muslims will have their religious worship on Fridays in the school while Christians will attend service at The School Hall on Sundays.
