Air quality and the Environment
We believe that our responsibility to protect the welfare of our students and staff is paramount and we wish to play our part in the drive towards greater environmental protection in China. These ideals are fulfilled with the installation of our world-class air-filtering system which ensures that everyone enjoys the best possible air quality each day. An indoor anti-air-pollution dome has also been installed so that students have somewhere to exercise, whatever the conditions outside.
