The school has a Zero tolerance policy to address the needs of the school for discipline that can maintain school safety, while maximizing student opportunity to learn. Discipline is of paramount importance in grooming a child to be a good citizen. We request the total cooperation of parents to ensure that the child obeys the school rules implicitly. By removing students who engage in disruptive behavior, the aim of the Zero Tolerance policy is to deter others from disruption, and create an improved climate for those students who remain.
Instances of alcohol, smoking, drugs, fighting, bullying, damage to school property, defiance of school authority and any violent act will entail immediate dismissal from the school. The Management reserves the right to remove a student from the school due to the gravity of these offences.
All incidents that infringe the school rules are taken note of and recorded on Incident Slips. The disciplinary steps relating to cases of escalating acts of indiscipline are given below:
The Principal must be informed of all incidents leading to the issue of Incident Slips. Yellow and Red Card cases will be dealt with by the Principal, after referrals from the Teachers, Coordinators, other Staff and Counselors.
