THEMI Hill Schools an English Medium (Pre-Primary, Primary and Secondary School) strongly believes in safeguarding the wellbeing of its community. To that end, our school invests significant resources in protecting the privacy of our staff, parents and children.

Students are current, prospective or past students enrolled at THEMI Hill.
Parents are current, prospective or past parents, and/or legal guardians, of a student or students at THEMI Hill.

Where applicable in the policy, alumni will be differentiated between those over the age of 18 and those under the age of 18.
Third parties are individuals or organizations that are not affiliated with or employed by THEMI Hill.
