Pao School organises four Xueyuans vertically across different ages and classes. All students belong to a Xueyuan for the duration of their time at the school. A Xueyuan is comprised of students and staff from all Houses and year groups who compete in a variety of sports, play-acting, and other activities. The competitions are not only good fun, but also foster a sense of community and school spirit. This system promotes healthy development of social skills and individual identity.
