Healthy School

We aim to run a healthy school. Teachers and students are encouraged to take care of their physical and mental health. Through a series and workshops and school-wide activities, this information is passed from students to families, the community, the society and the entire world, thus establishing a positive attitude towards life.

Promotion of Healthy Lunch – Lunch Policy

  1. Two canteens are located on the Ground Floor for teachers and students to enjoy nutritious lunches.
  2. In these canteens, students of S1 – S4 enjoy hot lunch prepared by the Tuck Shop provider or lunch brought from home. Students of S5 and S6 are allowed to eat outside of school.
  3. The “LOVE” platform in the Tuck Shop provides a venue for students to perform during lunch time to build up their self-confidence.
  4. Parents are also welcome to send lunch for their children before 12:00 noon.
