At Huili School Hangzhou nothing is more important than the Pastoral care of our pupils, it is at the very core of our ethos. We acknowledge that every child is different and treat every child according to their needs as we nurture their development; emotionally, academically, culturally and physically – to allow each of them to develop their potential, so that over time they will gain their own individual Huili identity. We develop the potential every child possesses, through the support, opportunities and choices we provide, which enable every individual to flourish in an emotionally and physically safe environment.
Our curriculum is holistic, designed to not only bring academic achievement but to also bring experiences that will encourage positive characteristics in our children’s development. Our children will have the emotional and intellectual skills needed to successfully meet the challenges that the society of tomorrow will place before them.
Although children below Grade 4 will belong to Houses, our full house system will start at Grade 4, when children will go to their own House Rooms each morning for registration. The House Master or Mistress and Tutors will lead the pastoral wellbeing of those in their care. In Grades 1 – 3, children register in their own classroom and the pastoral care role is largely led by their homeroom teachers. In the Primary and Junior High School, the house system also provides support for and aids the delivery of the specific subject of Wellbeing to all children.
