My Story

 

My name is Kato Lam and I'm from Hong Kong. The best thing about boarding was getting to make a lot of friends. It felt like home to me. I always felt that I was part of a community.

We naturally paid a lot of attention to academic work – two hours of study time per day – and this helped us to focus on our studies. At dinner time we all chatted about daily stuff and that helped to build a strong bond between us.

The school provided a wide range of weekend activities for us - theme parks, basketball matches and so much more. I collected countless good memories and that’s why boarding was so special to me.

I've gained a lot from boarding; I've learned to help others when they need it, and to respect everyone, staff and students. But the thing I've gained most are the friendships, which are sure to last a lifetime.”

Hola!

I am a 13 year old girl from Spain and I’ve spent the last year at St Joseph’s College. It has been the best experience of my life. I had so much fun and I met amazing people.

Boarding has helped me so much in my academic and personal life. In my academic life because it helped my English so much. Before I went to St Jo’s I didn't speak any English.

In my personal life it has helped me to be more mature and independent. I met people that have become my best friends.

I am so grateful to the school, my friends and room mates and the boarding staff. Thank you so much for this amazing year. You won't understand how grateful I am.
