A rich offering of sports and activities aids in developing the whole person and in providing the students with constructive alternatives for the use of their leisure time.

Three or four students share simple, cheerfully-decorated, wood-panelled rooms. Girls occupy one floor and the boys another. Boarding students are well looked after by the Housemother, two Assistant House Parents and a House Advisor. These professionals are responsible for health care, social development, meal and homework supervision and student counselling. In fact, all teachers and staff members participate in the care and supervision of the boarders at times. In many ways, Kennedy School boarding students become very much like a large, caring family.

All students must sit either the International Baccalaureate (IB) or French baccalauréat after following an academic programme with the chance to take each subject in either English or French, as well as studying one, two or even three further foreign languages. They live in an international community to which each Rosean contributes through his or her own language, culture and religion; making the campus a true “global village” to share with friends.
