ACS Oldham Hall conducts a spring cleaning for the entire hall during the mid-year and year-end school holidays. This requirement is necessary to rid off the dust and dirt found in the boarders’ rooms like the wardrobes, study desks, under the beds, ceiling fans, windows and other unreachable areas which are done by the professionals.

The boarder is expected to pack all his belongings prior to his departure from ACS Oldham Hall to his home country during these major school vacations as clearing of their belongings will ensure a thorough and expeditious process done by the cleaners. At the same time, the boarders’ rooms are rented out for holiday camps and retreats during this period and to avoid any loss of valuables, every boarder must clear his room before he is allowed to check-out.

Storage space and standard size cardboard boxes (chargeable) are available for the boarder to pack and store his belongings. Each boarder is entitled to two storage box spaces on a complimentary basis and a rate will be charged for the 3rd storage space onwards. Boarders can sell their used boxes to the office after use.

One luggage is equivalent to two storage spaces.
