The School follows guidance used by some international schools in the country and the region with regards to what happens when air quality in the city becomes particularly poor. All classrooms also have air-purifiers. Classrooms, on top of the normal daily clean, are  ‘deep cleaned’ by a professional cleaning company. The School also has routine fumigation to kill mosquitoes.
