Student Support Team

​The Student Support Team (SST) provides a way for parents, teachers and students to communicate concerns and access resources to help foster a student’s growth. SST’s aim is to work with students in their development in becoming who God created them to be.

SST is committed to supporting students holistically, addressing their mental, spiritual, physical, behavioural, social and emotional needs in a confidential environment. The SST adopt a collaborative approach, bringing together a range of professional skills and gifts, and work alongside teachers, support staff and families.

Please email us if you have any questions or would like further information about HOPE’s Student Support Team.

Extra Curricular Programs
HOPE offers an extracurricular program to help foster the personal development and skill base of our students and has developed an extracurricular program to which our students can subscribe. Each semester a new program of activities is distributed. These activities are held outside of school hours, either at lunchtime, or after school, and run for approximately 10 weeks. The activities are run by the teaching staff, parents and volunteers and as such the choices on offer differ somewhat from semester to semester according to the skill set of those providing the service. Extra-curricular clubs may include: music tuition, sports coaching, cooking classes, or art/craft activities.
Lunch Catering

HOPE employs a Catering Service who prepare daily lunches and provide them upon receipt of a lunch coupon. The menu is on a four-week rotation.

Almost thirty percent of our students purchase lunch through the coupon system. Lunch coupons are available for purchase at the School Office at both North, South and Siem Reap.

Other students bring a packed lunch. Students dine together in the shaded outdoor dining area. Filtered water is available at all times.

Here is the Hagar Menu for 2017-2018

Bus Service

HOPE provides a school van/mini bus service for families unable to transport their children to and/or from school. A cost is associated with using this service.

All drivers hold a Cambodian driving license and have passed the driving test in Cambodia. Seatbelts are fitted within the vehicles where possible.

A Bus Monitor accompanies students on the journeys to ensure safety. This person also has an ongoing relationship with the teaching staff and can communicate issues between school and home. This allows the driver to concentrate fully on driving the bus while the children are supervised by someone respected in the school community.

Bus Behaviour Guidelines must be followed and any misbehaviour on the school buses will be reported to the school Administration for disciplinary action.

These buses are also used for excursions and as support vehicles on school camps where necessary.

Payment Methods

Feel free to contact the Accounts Department for details.
