UISC offers ‘Flexi boarding’ as an option to all students. Many day students take this option to attend one of our tutorials or participate in one of the many sporting or cultural opportunities that are offered in our school. Some students simply take advantage of flexi boarding while their families travel or are away on business. Stays vary between1 day, 1 week, 1 month or more.
5-Day boarders also sometimes take the option to stay over the weekend, which is considered as ‘Flexi Boarding’. Again, they choose to stay in the Boarding House for a variety of reasons but the most common reason to stay is for completing homework assignments with their friends or, simply, because their parents have travelled. Enquiries are welcome and may be directed to the Head of Boarding.
If students wish to stay in the Boarding House due to a sports event, school camp, field trip or any other school related activity, the following will apply:
- Existing boarding students will not be required to pay an additional flexi boarding charge
- Day students will be expected to pay the standard flexi boarding charge of 200rmb per night and complete a flexi boarding form which should be handed in to the Head of Boarding at least 48 hrs before the intended stay.
- Where the school deems it compulsory for the student(s) to have an overnight stay in the Boarding House, the school will pay the flexi boarding costs. This, however, must have prior approval from the Head of School.
- Existing 5 day boarding students who wish to stay in the boarding house over the weekend for personal reasons will be expected to pay the standard flexi boarding charge of 200rmb per night and complete a flexi boarding form which should be handed in to the Head of Boarding at least 48 hrs before the intended stay.
For each proposed stay, the appropriate documentation (Flexi Boarding Form) must be completed in full and submitted to the Head of Boarding at least 48 hours prior to the requested stay. Where multiple nights are requested only one form is required.
Students will only be accepted into the Boarding House overnight after the completed documentation has been approved by the Head of Boarding and the necessary payment has been received by the Finance Department at school.
All students staying in Dragon House as flexi boarders are expected to abide by the general rules, regulations and expectations of Dragon House and are subject to the same consequences, as regular boarders should any breech occur.
