Over the short breaks (mid-semester, Easter, and Christmas), all national students go home and our international students (i.e. students from the SOS Children’s Villages outside Ghana and others who do not have families in Ghana) stay in the hostels. We offer special outings and entertainment programmes for such in-staying students so they can feel at home during the holidays. We do encourage parents and guardians of national students to extend home hospitality to international students under the school’s Host Parent Program. Students staying in the hostels during vacation breaks are expected to follow a set of guidelines for the period although these are a bit relaxed in relation to the school Rules and Regulations. During summer vacation, from June through August, all students head home.
